Knitting Diversion: Stitch Markers

My friend Sonya and I went on a trip to Denver in June and among other things, we visited Fabric Bliss, a great little shop focused on knitting and sewing. It was here that I was introduced to the gorgeous hand painted yarn of Madelinetosh. They also had some adorable beaded stitch markers. Sonya makes jewelry, so we got some beads on our trip and she gave me some beautiful beaded stitch markers for my birthday.

I was so inspired that I’ve tried my hand at some stitch markers of my own with the more standard fare available at my local craft stores. I’ve had so much fun making them, I can see why jewelry making is so addictive! I’ll be giving some of these away to my knitting friends and I shouldn’t run out of stitch markers anytime soon!
