A gorgeous glittering set of unique knitting stitch markers/progress keepers. Hearts abound in these lovely stitch markers; a fabulous set of tools, perfect as a gift for the knitter in your life. One of the markers in this set features garnet gemstones, and garnet is the birthstone of January.
This listing is for a set of five knitting stitch markers; each marker is different:
Love Much Laugh Often is a wonderful recipe for a perfect relationship; a nice oval solid etched charm, double sided.
Rich dark red garnet beads, one 6mm in diameter, one 10mm, separated by a silver plated rondelle bead, atop a dangling zinc alloy puffy heart.
A silvery heart sits between red glowing glass beads – faceted, crackle and beautifully clear – with an exquisite filigree heart dangling beneath.
A red crackled glass heart separates two tiny Tibetan silver hearts.
A winged heart charm, zinc alloy and single-sided, from which dangles a rich red silver-lined bead and two tiny silver seed beads.
You will receive five knitting stitch markers as shown and described above; the charms are made from zinc alloy or Tibetan silver and are free of nickel, cadmium and lead; the rings are made from silver-plated copper wire. Each ring is soldered closed so that the ring will not snag on your knitting whilst you are using it. The solder used is low temperature lead free silver solder.
The large ring measures 8mm across, and is suitable for use on knitting needles up to 6mm (US size 10, UK Imperial size 4). As a lace knitter myself, I have found this size to be the most comfortable to use, and the charms provide a little weight and interest to the knitting process.
Many commercially produced stitch markers use jump rings made from wire that is too thin and quickly becomes misshapen; I make my stitch markers from 1mm wire that maintains its shape in use. Many stitch markers are not soldered closed, so that the yarn is easily snagged; my stitch markers are soldered so that there is no gap in the ring to snag your yarn.
The charms used for these markers are a mixture of double-sided and single-sided, as shown in the photographs.
