you know those tiny hair clips for little girls ?
i use them, they come in all bright colors and clip on and off fast

Here is what im talking about

How do you use those between stitches?  Or don't you?

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

I use them whenever they're suggested in a pattern.

i'm with you, TheDishclothQueen, they are just not my thing.  i use scraps of yarn if i use stitch markers at all. 

Ah!  You've reminded me! Smiley  I have used ribbon & yarn as markers for making Dorina Dragon, though they're not the conventional hang-on the needle kind.  They were put in the stiches themselves.  The purpose of them at that point was to mark where to match up 3 pieces when sewing her together (removed later).  Alas, she is still a UFO because I'm modifying her face to make her less cutesy, more fantasy, and I hate hand sewing.  Easy to follow pattern if anyone wants to try (translates to less than $3 USD!), finished all the knitting parts in about a week, though....  Great intro to wrapping & turning for newer knitters, too.

Whenever the pattern calls for them. I haven't done any big projects yet, so it's not that often.
I plan on making a set from polymer clay soon but untill that time I use small elastic bands.

I used to use them until I learned to read my knitting, I found it better to understand my lace patterns rather than rely on markers.  If I knit in the round I usually place an extra purl stitch between the front and the back.

I use "chinese jacks" as stitch markers.  They're a toy I only barely remember fromthe 80's.  Kinda like a colored plastic split ring.  I found an old unopened blister pack of them at the Goodwill.  They're awesome.  They are more than big enough for my size 15 needles, which is really the largest I use, I have a dozen different colors if I need to color code something, and they can be taken OFF the needle without removing the knitting or waiting to get to that point.  They rock.
