i 've seen cute charms that are used as stitch markers and i was thinking about making a set as a gift, but i don't knit so i wanted to be sure they would work correctly. is the ring closed, or does it need to open and close like a jewelry clasp? does the size of the charm make a diffrence? and does each one need to be diffrent?

For knitting stitch markers, the ring is closed.  Crochet ones need a clasp, though.  This pic shows ones with both (knitting side at top, crochet at bottom): http://www.flickr.com/photos/clarissa68/3183124512/. I don't think the size of the charm matters that much.  I have ones with tiny beads and ones with big polymer clay charms that work equally well.  You'll want to make sure they won't snag on the yarn though, and keep in mind that if the ring is too small, they might not fit on a lot of needles.  You could make a set of identical ones or a bunch of one offs, doesn't matter.  Hope that helps!
