I love stitch markers and there are some gorgeous ones out in blogland but....Do you understand the difference in ones used for crochet and ones used for knitting? Some of you probably do but just in case you don't I thought I would show some and give the link to her tutorial so you can make your own. In case you haven't learned it by now, I am big on tutorials. I am one of those people that if you tied my hands I wouldn't be able to say a word, my hands flutter around just as fast as my jaws flap. Okay, y'all go put that rope back. 8>) For me the difference is that markers for knitting need to have a ring at the top so you can slide it onto your knitting needle to mark the spot between two stitches. For crochet, you need to have one that opens because you actually connect it into a stitch to mark your place. Now the first photo and link are to a great site and Debb does a very good photo tutorial and tells you everything you might possibly need and exactly how to make some like in her photo. Please go by and check hers out, she is a really talented lady and don't forget to make a stop by her Etsy Store.
