Stitch markers are really easy to make, you guys! I didn’t really realize it until trying it for myself last week, but with just a few jump rings (which you can find at my big box craft retailer or online) and charms, you’ve got a stitch marker. I DIY’d these as a last minute gift for a knitter friend, but you can put this tutorial in your back pocket for any time you’ve got a knitter in need of a personalized gift.
Thank goodness we’ve come to another Friday. Monday I had a wonderful day filled with crafts and planning a doozie of a project- I’ll share more on that another day. Tuesday and Wednesday, I had jury duty for the first time ever! While I can’t discuss the details of the case, I can share that I got all the way to the “we, the jury, find the defendant” part. If nothing else, it was for sure an interesting experience! And this weekend will be filled with catching up on all the work I missed while making secret plans and doing my civic duty – wish me luck. ;)
