This swap sounds great, but I've never made a stitch marker before!  I'm not entirely sure how to go about it.

Thank you so much for the links!  You've convinced me!  Especially with the ones that use pretty colored wire... I used to love playing with that stuff when I was little.

onthinice--thanks for those links! I've seen some, but the colored wire and straws are GREAT ideas!
I cannot wait for this swap. Is it bad that I've already started?

So I don't think I qualify for this swap cause I just joined craftster this month, but it seems like so much fun and I've been meaning to try my hand at some cool stitch markers.
Is is possible for me to join anyway?Huh  I was thinking I could mail to my partner and they would only have to mail back when they received my markers.
Sorry if I'm being totally out of line by asking this, I just thought I'd try.

I'm glad you guys found the links helpful.  If you do a google search, there are even more links that pop up without tutes but are great for inspiration (like show and tell on blogs).  I will have to check out the dates on the Craft Your Own Needles swap.  This is my first swap, so I will have to sit out the needle swap if this one does not end before the closure date for the new one.

The Meow Won't Purr - Started already?  Hmmm...maybe we should both sit in the corner because I have started also.  It looks like there will be plenty extra to use as gifts for my knitting friends and family members.  <rabidly crafting>

I finished mine already too.  I was crafting for another swap I was in, so I was on a roll. 

I was thinking about mailing on 5/29 but it seems too early.  Don't want to the first to mail it.   Wink  I guess I will mail it out Sat then.

Ok yes I did swallow it but it was becuase she made me laugh and it was an accident!  It is not something I do on a regular basis and I was crocheting at the time as well.  This is going to make it hard for me to tell my 9 month old son not to put things in his mouth.   Wink

Not only did I mail my stitch markers to Messily today, but I received them from Jen.  They are so cute.  She also crocheted a cute little bag that they came in. 

So much fun.  I'll post some pics when I can get near a camera.  This was my first craftster swap and now I'm searching for another one. 

Did I mention I love my stitch markers!!!
