Decorative tools

I love using decorative tools, especially in my hobbies, such as beaded stitch markers.

I sold a set of my own handmade stitch markers on Etsy this morning, and have a quick search to see what kinds other talented Etsyknitters were selling. I found a fantastic selection! Here are some of my favourites.

I adore these alpaca stitch markers from DesignsbyTami.

Incredibly cute!
Next is a rainbow of colours in these beautiful millefiori stitch markers from jeanettejedd.

The opening loops mean they can be used for both knitting and crochet - bonus!

I love dragonfly designs - so this set really stood out to me.

They are from glitterbug. Beautiful.

This Crazy Cousin Lucy set from MDKnits would make me smile each time I used them.

Finally, as we live just 2 miles from the coast, I couldn't resist these By The Sea stitch markers from mrae123.

Just fun!

Hey, LOOVE those stitch markers! I currently use the plain plastic cheapie ones, or whatever I can find around the house that is maleable, like hairpins, or twist ties!! I need to pamper myself with some of these beauties!!

They are all lovely but I especially like the dragonflies as well.

I'm like kloseknit and use little plastic ones - these ones are so beautiful though I'm sure I need to add them to my wish list!!
