I went to knitting club earlier this week and forgot to take my accessories
bag. I soon realised that I needed a couple of stitchmarkers to mark the position of the thumb gusset increases in the fingerless mitt I was knitting.
I searched around in my handbag and found a couple of hair bobbles; I have these in every bag I own as both my daughters and I have long hair. Solution! They made great temporary stitchmarkers.
Reminds me of the Machete Elastic Wonder from the Spy Kids film. :)
