Stitch Marker Swap

I joined in for a stitch marker swap on the Knitty Coffeeshop. I made markers to swap with nine different people. So far I've received three very nice sets of markers.

These markers were sent by Lynnea. She used toggle clasps for the ring. It make a very nice finished look to the marker - and they are very light weight. I really like the lightness and the way the little clear beads sparkle like crystal.

This set is from Cristi . I really like how she used the bead cap on the bottom of the marker. The blue beads remind me of garden gazing balls. Very pretty.

And the third set was from Shona. The beads have a really neat depth to the color. Check out the cool little bag she knit for them - out of left over sock yarn.

Thanks to all three of you!

Great swaps there - and the little bag - I've done similar - a great way to use up leftovers.

I'm not normally big into stitch markers--I rarely use them, to be honest--but those first ones, from Lynnea, had me ready to head out the door to go to Beadworks. What great swap partners you got! And there's more to come!
