It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.

I've had it up to here with the wal-mart brand split ring markers!
I can't work with them, no matter how hard I try, they keep falling out of my work, therefore defeating the purpose!!

so, I made my own!
I made some with a lobster claw clasp (for the lighter-weight yarns), and some with an earring-thing and formed it into a circle (for the heavier-weight and bulky yarns), plus, I have a small loop at the bottom of all these so that I can finish making other stitch markers with lobster claw clasps (with numbers!) to keep track of the number of rows, and some others for my crochet projects, so that I know what size hook to use! I'll post those pics later, and action shots!
(sorry for the very blurry pictures. my phone doesn't take very good close-up pics)
all of them together:

and a close up of the two different styles, plus an action shot

~Working on getting back into swaps after some crazy two years!~

Please help me with my "patchwork" station blanket! I would love to get fire department patches! Thanks!

I don't knit and I crochet badly but I know what your talking about and those are beautiful.  I could see them as glam gifts for any knitter/crocheter in all kinds of jewel colors or pearl beads!
Those are great!! 
Now I'll have to try my had at knitting and crocheting just so I can make some for myself ^_^

Those came out looking pretty cool..I definitely know what you are talking about with the stitch markers! Of course I would also grab one of those with the lobster claw and hook it on my keyring just because it's that's pretty Grin

I love handcrafted stitch markers! Not only functional but they add that extra something while knitting (or crocheting).  Excellent work!
