Stitch markers

How cute are these?

I balled up one skein of the dark grey polworth and silk, intending to cast on for a lace shawl and found that had no idea where any of my stitch markers are. I usually use the plain small white markers found everywhere. So, off I trot to Walmart - cause it's so close and I know where the craft section is - and while I was cruising the aisles I found these cute little charms for a bracelet.

A couple of split rings later and I have this darling set of stitch markers. I love the little teacups and teapots...

Guess what all my knitting friends are getting for holiday presents this year?

Isn't this the prettiest little pouch to put them in? A friend gave it to me recently and I have been looking for just the right thing to carry in it.

I love both things! Such cute markers. Great bag.

What a great idea. And a lot more useful than a charm bracelette.

I just got a drum carder and I would like to roll the batts the way you have rolled some of yours to show off the color. Could you explain the rolling process--it shows off the color so well. Thanks!

I LOVE those stitch markers! I was thinking about signing up for that spunky fiber of the month club, but wasn't sure. It sound like you like it :)
