Anyone who has been through my patterns knows that I live or die by my stitch markers. In fact, you may have even seen a special, custom-made stitch marker show up here and there:
|Custom "Embrace" stitch marker by SpindleCat Studio|
I adore my stitch markers from SpindleCat Studio and really recommend her work. They're easy to use. They don't snag. And best of all, they're made of copper -- so they bend a little, making them easy to get in and out of your work.
On the down side, Kate (of SpindleCat) usually doesn't keep the removable stitch markers you need for crocheting in her shop. She's very convo friendly, but keep in mind that if you're ordering for a hooker, it's probably going to be a custom order!
I recently found another seller who does keep removable stitch markers in her shop and I'm intrigued by the design.
|Melody Removable Stitch Markers by TwiceShearedSheep|
I haven't personally tried the Melody Removable Stitch Markers by TwiceShearedSheep, but they are beautiful and look like they'd be great for amigurumi.
Of course, gem stone stitch markers are a bit of an extravagance (that's what makes them such a great gift!). But that gets me to wondering -- what do the rest of you use to keep track of rounds? Give me a shout in the comments and share your favorite stitch marker (or stitch marker maker!)
