Crafty Ho'

So you know how I am working on my Queen Kahuna socks? Well these suckers require that you use markers. Multiple markers. Which is great. Yeah markers. Except the majority of my markers just don't cut it for small needles. They are too fat or too heavy. I had a few tiny skinny plastic ones that worked alright, but they vanished. Turned to antimatter they did! I went to buy some more, but two, yes two, stores were out of the size I needed. And then genius struck. Sort of.

I think I might have seen something similar somewhere. And if I ripped this off from you, sorry! But, too bad. I really am pleased with myself. So I'm not getting rid of these fun stitch markers which may or may not be some type of trademark/ copyright/intellectual property violation.

I now have pretty, small needle size appropriate, stitch markers. They are light, pretty, and don't get tangled on the yarn. What more could you ask for? Well, actually you could ask for more colored beads, because I didn't have a wide selection and that made me kinda sad. Nonetheless, I still am sporting a grin that would fool the average person into think that I really invented something smart and impressive.

I love them- little and cute. Are those jumprings from the craft store?

Wow! I just use those tiny pony tail holders that you get a million for two dollars at wall mart. Be careful not to fing the nice ones.

I've had the jump rings laying around because I bought the wrong ones for my charm bracelet (I meant to get sterling silver ones and bought the silver colored ones) but as I recall I bought them at Michaels craft store in the jewelry/beading section.
