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.
Picks of the Week
There were some really fun and inspiring ideas on the knit and crochet blogs this week (I know, I always say that, but it’s true!). In particular some DIY rainbow stitch markers and rainbow shoelaces were big standouts for me! I love the idea of crocheting shoe laces, and the ones I’m sharing today are a DIY designed to help fight homophobia in soccer – how great is that?! And, hello, any stitch marker DIY will have my attention.
