Description

A lovely set of unique knitting stitch markers/progress keepers. Dive into the deep blue ocean, swim with dolphins while fish tickle your toes and whales waive their tails at you! These are beautiful markers to work with. This fabulous set of tools is an ideal gift for a knitter (or to keep for yourself!).

This listing is for a set of five knitting stitch markers; each marker is different:

A whale-tail charm, filigree’d with Celtic knots, is decorated with dark blue glass pearls and silver coloured beads, representing the colour of the sea and the crests of the waves.
The fish charm swims beneath a stack of mother of pearl chips.
A Tibetan silver dolphin charm leaps beneath a rich blue banded agate bead.
The small stack of amazonite chips, large and small, is the colour of a beautiful calm Caribbean sea.
A stack of blue/brown Tiger’s Eye chips is a richly dark counterpoint to the calm blue of the amazonite.

You will receive five knitting stitch markers as shown and described above; the charms are made from zinc alloy or Tibetan silver (as stated) 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.

    I bought this as a gift for a fellow knitter who loves dolphins and the ocean! She’s thrilled and said she thinks they’re almost too beautiful to use on a WIP
