Stitch Marker Alternatives
Do you use stitch markers? I’ve always used Boye stitch markers, and liked them. They work well and slide easily in and out of stitches….until recently.
I finally found a project they don’t work for….a stuffed frog! Because you use a smaller hook to make animals, I was having a hard time getting my stitch marker in, but if I didn’t use it I was losing round count. I live half hour to the closest store, so here’s my solution.
Use a paper clip. It’s think enough to slide in small stitches and you can pull it back out just as easy.
No paper clips around? You can also use a safety pin.
BOBBY PINS!!! – I’m adding this because there were so many comments that you ladies use these. I can’t believe I didn’t think of this. You made me remember that this is what I always saw my mother use when I was growing up. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it!!!
If you have any other solutions I’d love to hear them.
