I am surprised that I am the first to post pics. I got my stitch markers a few days ago, but haven't had time to post.

Here they are two necklaces with stitch markers



And a close up of two, one open and one closed.

So I am a bit upset that I missed this swap. Those are so cool. What is the hook thingy, an ear ring clasp?

Lucky you. Smiley

baby-bumblebee - there is already talk of another round in the new swap idea forum.
I think I'm more excited to see the "means of containment" than I am to see the stitch markers. Necklaces - what a great idea! Those are both lovely!

It is an earring clasp.  I had originally used a different one, but when I tested it on my knitting, I didn't like it, so I switched to these.  I didn't have enough, so I had to buy more.  I was suprised that they were harder to find.  Maybe it was just a fluke at that one time.

I hope the necklaces fit ok.  I tried to design the necklaces so they could be worn with or without stitch markers.

A necklace is a perfect idea! Why didn't I think of that? *smacks head*

Now I know what to do/how to keep my stitch markers so my 3 year old stays out of them!

On my way back from mailing to Moilulu, I checked my mail to find that my package from her had already arrived (she mailed just yesterday!) Grin

My oh my am I spoiled!!

The containment - a cute pouch - made from the sleeve of a felted sweater!


First set of stitch markers


Second set of stitch markers


Close-up of the one different marker from set 2 (you can't see it clearly in the first pic)


Now, if those markers and the pouch weren't beautiful enough, she went and REALLY spoiled me by making me this GORGEOUS knitters' abacus (which went right on after taking this pic!)!!



Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much Moilulu! I love it all SO much - you really spoiled me!

I really love that one green bead.  I don't think I have ever seen anything quite like it.  The stitch markers are beautiful.
