I started using bobby pins the other day! I usually use actual stitch markers but I can't find any at the mo, so I used a bobby pin Smiley I've also been known to use scrap yarn and safety pins Smiley

I have a box of paperclips that I use as stitch markers.

I use bobby pins - I've found they're a lot easier than the plastic stitch markers to get on and off.

I found some at a dollar store. I am tempted to try and paint some of the plain ones as I have not been able to get them again and I love all things bright. I think sometimes you can get them at places like target too, it just depends on luck Wink
Check out these though! I love the idea but dread using superglue!

I've used nail polish to paint bobbie pins and hair clips. It works out really well.

I've only ever used bobby pins, until recently.  They mysteriously all went to bobby pin heaven, or another dimension or something.  I love bobby pins because they're not pointy like a safety pin, they easily slide into the stitch, and pulling them out doesn't distort the yarn.

Recently I've had to use different colored yarns to mark my spots.  I don't like putting the yarn in because I take my hook out to pull it through and I'm scared of my work coming apart.  The upside to the yarn, is that I discovered a new color combo that I never would have tried otherwise...brown and lime green.  I was making a brown beanie, and used lime green to mark my spot and it looks good.  It's inspired a group of hats that I'm trying out with names based on ice cream.

Brown & Green - "mint chocolate"
Brown & Yellow - so far unnamed, but lemon and chocolate will be in there somehow.
thinking of white and red - "cherry on top"
etc, etc...

I use pins. Not safety pins, mind you, but regular pins. Needless to say, the first few rounds can be painful if I'm not careful.
