My Own Stitch Markers

Scissor, tape measure, stitch saver and stitch markers. I am ready to hit the needles.
Knitting gadget is so much fun. It may be a little geeky, but as a knitter one needs things. Sort of...

I love finding all kinds of crazy tape measures, scissors and other odd kind of things to use while knitting.

And of course stitch markers. There are millions to choose from.

This time I made my own in polymer clay. It was so much fun. I used a little clay, some paint and tiger tails.

Really not difficult. And since I had all I needed in my studio I just went for it.

I found a great tutorial for making them if you want to have a go. It does not take a lot of skills. Just a little equipment and you are there.

  2. Så herlige maskemarkører. Hjemmelagede er de beste.
    Jeg har flere typer, som noen forskjellige har laget. Noen bedre enn andre, selvfølgelig. De som " en ikke strikker" har laget, kan være too Much, men de er artige å ha alikevel.
    Strikkestæsj er morro!!!!!
