Stitch Markers?

Stitch Markers...
I think one of the most annoying crochet tool yet! I have tried everything under the sun and have still not found one that I love.

My "favorite" are safety pins, probably because I hibernate projects a lot and they keep my spot. I have tried before to get some custom ones made. (I cannot tell you how many times I have stuck myself with those darn pins) It never works out though.

I have used the circular plastic ones, paper clips, you name it I have probably tried it.

What do you use?

Crochet Along

So I have been slow moving on this blanket. It is coming along though. I have decided to use Red Heart Dark Blue yarn (I had it laying around, may as well use it).
What did everybody else choose? Have you started?

Craft Fair May 1st, 2010

I have been so busy, and most of that is due to the Craft Fair coming up. I love craft fairs, but man are they work.

I am not even close to being ready (of course) but ready or not May 1st I will be there selling my items!

I am actually pretty excited about this fair too, for many reasons.
  1. It is my second fair, so I should be a little more prepared
  2. I have some great new items I will be showing off, including jewelry.
  3. I have some new presentation items that will help me.
  4. It is much longer than my last one, which means I should sell more!
  5. I have some items to giveaway throughout the day!
Here is the info, in case you live in, or near Indiana.
