Stitch Markers

I just love how necessity is the mother of invention sometimes. Today it proved to be true once again. I'm participating in a craft swap and while I made one item, I didn't want it to seem skimpy. One of those "I participated and all I got was one item while another person got three" things. So, I thought and thought. What else could I make that is practical and pretty? The person I'm making for is a knitter so I thought aha! Stitch markers!

And this is what I came up with:



Here is my other foray. Crocheted jewelry!



I really like it. Next I want to try a necklace. Maybe something will make it into my shop. I was all set to take photos and batteries died! Grr. So that is on the docket for this week.
