I've had it up to here
with the wal-mart brand split ring markers!
I can't work with them, no matter how hard I try, they keep falling out of my work, therefore defeating the purpose!!
so, I made my own!
I made some with a lobster claw clasp (for the lighter-weight yarns), and some with an earring-thing and formed it into a circle (for the heavier-weight and bulky yarns), plus, I have a small loop at the bottom of all these so that I can finish making other stitch markers with lobster claw clasps (with numbers!) to keep track of the number of rows, and some others for my crochet projects, so that I know what size hook to use! I'll post those pics later, and action shots!
(sorry for the very blurry pictures. my phone doesn't take very good close-up pics)
all of them together:
and a close up of the two different styles, plus an action shot
