Good things: handmade felted stitch markers

Good morning friends, stitch-markers I just had to share a photo of these stitch markers with you. I'm the first to admit that when it comes to knitting equipment, I'm a bit of a cheapskate. For the longest time, I refused to buy stitch markers – why pay for some ugly plastic ring when safety pins and scraps of yarn are free? Of course, stitch markers have come a long way from the cheap pink and blue hoops that were available when I started knitting 20 years ago. When I visited my sister, Whitney, in Halifax, I saw some of the work that her housemate, Tamara, was doing with felted wool, and that's when the penny dropped. Felted wool stitch markers – how cool would that be? I pitched the idea to Tamara and she graciously accepted the challenge. Whitney brought the finished markers to me a week ago (that's them up there) and I'm really pleased. I can't wait to start a new project so that I can put them to good use. Thanks, Tamara!
