Small Things

I’m not sure what happened.  But somehow, I find myself not just in possession of a whole whack of stitch markers, but excited by them.  It could be because they’re so damn perfect.  They work as regular and locking markers, they fit up to about a size 10 needle, they weigh nothing, and they don’t snag the yarn.  And, most important of all, they’re about as streamlined and minimalist as you can imagine.  They look something like this.

Stitch MarkersExcept my pile of them is huge.  Alarmingly huge.  I didn’t show you the whole pile because a heap of black safety-pins looks distressingly like spider legs, and I wouldn’t do that to you.  But I assure you, I’m smitten with them.
