Stitch Markers

One of the most simple knitting tools is also the best.  Stitch Markers.  I just started this tank sweater Sirin, by Melisa Goodale.  It is very lacy and requires some concentration.  The pattern only calls for two stitch markers, which would be adequate.  But I have ripped out so many lace garments from missing one yarn over (three rows down) that I finally got smart.  I place a stitch marker for every repeat, and it has saved me a lot of aggravation and ripping out!    It is such a simple and easy fix for stress free knitting.

I am finally out of my knitting slump and have been casting on like a maniac….now to finish some of these projects :)

  1. This is brilliant. So obvious and yet so helpful….and clearly something while obvious I had not thought of :)
