FO: Baby Sheep Stitch Markers

Yesterday I blogged about how to store your notions. Well in today's post I'm going to share with you notions that my sister made! Introducing the first of many stitch markers to come!

These were absolutely impossible to photograph. Does anyone know what type of lens works best for close up images? I need better pictures for when I post these in my Etsy store! :]

However this is my personal herd of little sheep. I absolutely adore these stitch markers! Also she is designing some crochet stitch markers for all of you happy hookers!

When I finally defeat my current wips and the Ravellenic games are finished I'm going to do some silversmith work and make shawl pins. Also I am still working on those purse handles for knitted items as well as ceramic yarn bowls. So much to do and so little time! My baby (sewing machine) is currently out of commission so the needle cases have been postponed until she's all better.

Also this past week I did finish a bag, "Life's a Beach Tote"... still in the process of writing the final pattern up. I might carry some of these in the store, what do you think?

Make sure you check back this week for more great organization tips and ideas!

  1. So sweet. Your sister is truly gifted.

  2. Adorable ... these stitch markers are a great addition to anyone's stash of notions!

  3. Adorable. Those are the best stitch markers ever, your sister is very talented.

  4. You have been so fabulously busy lately! Shawl pins, markers, and needle cases? You will be carrying it all! I really love those stitch markers, they remind me of the sheep from the show Wallace and Gromit (where the dog knits by the way). Also, for up close images you will need a macro lens, I would not recommend buying the cheaper end ones because in my experience they don't work well, I have the cheapest Nikon one and I never use it.

  5. I love those stitch markers! Are you using the macro setting on your camera? It looks like a little flower and it will help you take better close up pictures using the camera you have without having to buy an extra lens.

  6. Uiiii! So cute!!! :-) I dnever knit with the help of stitch markers, but now I sure wish I would. ;-)

  7. Soooo cute!!!! I love stitch markers and these are just perfect

  8. So cute! I love handmade stitch markers ♥
    (ps. is that that crackle nail polish?)

  9. Adorable stitch markers. Can't wait to see the shawl pins.


Thank you for visiting my blog, I would love to hear from you!
