I don't know if this is any kind of faux pas, but I saw this post on a visit to Craftster and just had to share it back home in Crochetville...

Easiest Stitch Markers Ever

These are really pretty, inexpensive to make, and easy to use. I love them!

Looks simple enough! Bet you could take paper clips and make them yourself or any gauge wire.

Those are mine, mimi-mia! I'm glad you liked them enough to post them here. I don't know why I didn't.

I like them a lot for regular type yarns, but have been having trouble with snagging on this Bernat boucle I've started a scarf with.
I think the fix for that would be to make the middle part bigger--the part you bend over the mandrel.

I also did a couple with beads, but don't like them at all! When it comes to the stitch marker swap I'm going to ask my partner what she wants. I can't find the memory wire in ring size anywhere in town so will have to order some and see if I like that style. I just love sterling silver though!

Did you all check out the ones on Drew's blog? They were super cute because they integrated letters to help organize yourself. How clever!!

Hey there. I was updating my website last night and there was so much to upload I just switched folders instead of trying to figure out what was already up, and I guess the stitch markers were in the other folder.
Here's a pic:
