paperclips, rubber bands, scrap yarn tied into loops, loops of wire, those twisty things for closing sandwich bags... ummm that's all I can think of offhand - but lots of things can be used as stitch markers.

Bits of paper!
Bits of scrap yarn.

I've been looking for metal rings the right size for ages and gave in.  Bits of yarn work just as well.

Thanks its been a long day i just tied yarn into loops but those are all great idea. Im never buying them again cause they end up in under the couch or  in that big black hole where all my socks go.

Since I don't own any, I end up using safety pins, rubber jelly bracelets, hair ties, and the like. I really like using safety pins, though.

Edit: I forgot to say why I like sfety pins so much, they are especially helpful because when they aren't in use, you can pin them to you pants or any other peice of handy material, so it is easy not to  lose them.

I do the little circles of yarn.  They dont get in your way because they are soft and flexible.

Someone used a ring or a toe ring. In that vein, an earring would do. Safety pins.

Yarn loops; straw slivers; those teeny tiny elastic bands for finishing braids.  Or just count.

I use the little girls' hair elastics.  They're pretty, brightly colored, and big enough to fit on really big needles, if need be.  And at 99 cents for a gajillion, you can't go wrong.  For lace or tiny things, I use scrap yarn.
