If you need some new stitch markers, here's a post I wrote for my knitting blog, The Knitting Needle and the Damage Done, on selected stitch markers (there are some cute ones out there!):

And here's a post on making your own stitch markers (it's easy!):

I saw the comment about jump rings opening up. I use split rings (9mm & 20mm) and have never had one snag yarn yet, even though my projects regularly get packed into go bags and travel with me. I have some that are beaded and some that are simply a bit of colorful yarn attached with a larkshead knot (so they are easier to find if they try to escape during that perilous jump from needle to needle).

The pretty, dangly stitch markers make an attractive target for my cats on a circular needle, so I’ll stitch to the boring ones.

These are the best! 51 common knitting abbreviations and some blank tags to write on. You can add them to any pin style stitch marker!

I am still using small cut slices of colored plastic straws, though I might get tempted to make some of these.
