Working with my hands

Posted in Accessories, DIY, Stitch Markers at 9:16 pm by Jennie

First off, I would like to thank everyone who left me such kind comforting comments. I feel so close to ya’ll and yet we’ve never met. Strange. 🙂

Not much knitting, but heck, I’m super happy being crafty. What have I been up to? Stitch markers!! They are so fun to make. I made a ton for my newly formed knitting group. Consisting mostly of my coworkers. lol

It is such a joy to twist and turn copper wire into something pretty. A few of my friends suggested I try a sell a few, well guess, what? I freaking sold two sets of my left overs on Etsy. Now I’m on a SM (haha, no dirty thoughts here 😉 ) craze. Don’t know if I’ll keep this up, I tend to get obsessed with a craft but drop it after awhile when it starts become a chore.

Ruby Red Emerald City

I even started giving the sets names. LOL 🙂 Fancy hand painted yarns have pretty names, why can’t my stitch markers? hehe 😀 The green set above has been dub… Emerald City. There are more stitch markers in my Flickr account.

    Those sounds great. They funny thing is you’ve picked another one of my old crafts! I use to love beading and making jewelry. Too bad I don’t like to wear that much jewelry. I’ve got a great bowl of stitch markers though 🙂

    I lvoe the colored wire you used.

    fun! I have made a few, but they were just random ones. I like your idea of naming your sets, why not? 🙂
