Some Yule gifts.

I had intended this to a be a tutorial post,  with nice glossy pictures of the whole process of making beaded stitch markers.   My camera disagreed with me,  and gave me only one glossy picture.   Ah, well, so it goes.

I am making stitch marker sets for the ladies in my knitting circle.     Beaded stitch markers are fast and fun to make,  and always useful.    The ones I make are very simple – I just slid the beads I’m using onto an I pin,  then bend the end of the pin around a knitting needle into a circle and neaten it up with some small pliers.

Stitch markers

Each set I am making will have 8 colored markers, in two different patterns, and a set of alphabet markers – A thru H,  which are useful for complicated patterns.
