I desperately needed some more stitch markers as I am knitting a massive shawl with lots of marked repeats. I used 6mm split rings, silver headpins and a selection of beads and charms. I got the charms from the Norwich bead and textile fair in April. To make the beaded stitch markers I threaded the beads onto the headpins, made a loop with the end wire with round nosed pliers and threaded them onto the split rings. The split rings fit up to 5mm needles once the headpins were threaded on. You can never have too many stitch markers for knitting!
