So I have to keep my hands busy while watching tv and so I knit. I recently had to rip out 36 rows of a lace scarf I'm making for my daughter, and so my search for the perfect stitch marker was born. Searching through craftster and etsy for inspiration, I raided my bead stash and made these while watching the first season of Buffy The Vampire Slayer on Netflix. Grin   There are 7 sets here ... the blue glass ones are a gift for my best friend, the red ones are for my lace knitting, since the loops are smaller, the purple and black are my faves, the others are just because I couldn't stop after the first three sets. I am now completely addicted to making these and can't wait to see what else I can come up with. Comments appreciated .. enjoy

super cute!  Um...how do they work?  Do you just stitch around them and they stay because the circle side is big but flexible enough to be pulled out? 

Also - LOOOOOOOVE Buffy!  we watch the whole series every year or so! Smiley

Thank you Faesissa and Emilyjp  Smiley They were super fast and easy to make ... Emily, you use them, by putting them on the knitting needle where you need to keep track of a pattern section and they just slip from needle to needle when knitting. I hope that helps.

You can make them for crocheting .. you just use large lobster clasps http://www.fusionbeads.com/shop/product/40551/  like that. So that they can be clipped on and off the yarn
