Okay, it's actually a baker's dozen of crochet stitch markers.  I made this for a swap, but I thought I'd share it with everybody else because my swap partner has received the stitch markers and used the tiny crochet hook!?!  On with the pictures...



If you like Rothko's work, well, these are miniatures of Rothko-inspired art.  I used shrinky dink sheets and drew the images with coloured pencils.



Went a tad wire happy with blue glass beads!




Yep, that's the crochet hook in question.  Just how tiny is it?  Well, this is what my swap partner did with the crochet hook!

That tiny hook is amazing! How did you make it?

Actually it's all fantastic, but I especially love the hook. Good work with all of it!

starberrii, for the crochet hook, I used a nail file and worked on a wooden toothpick till it resembled a crochet hook.  It's really not too bad but it did take three attempts before I was satisfied with the results Tongue

Wow - as someone obsessed with crochet hooks as large as possible at the moment, I'm amazed.  That hook is beautiful Cheesy, and so nice to see something made with it.

The stitch markers are beuatiful too - I did a project on Rothko with my year 1 & 2 (1st & 2nd grade ?) class, and I like his art.  Out of curiosity, what did you use for the tops of the stitch markers?

Thanks for the kind words Smiley  I've never seen Rothko's work but my swap partner mentioned it to me, hence the Rothko-inspired stitch markers.  For the crochet stitch marker tops, I used lever-back earring hooks (purchased at Jo-Ann's).

Those are so pretty! Are the stitch markers just made with leverback earring findings? I love the wire ones best, and of course the tiny hook!

Thanks Smiley  Yes, they're really just leverback earring findings!  I didn't know what else to use, since my swap partner crochets (I knit, so my stitch markers are usually made with closed jump rings).
