Stitch Markers


When you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed that I am doing a fair bit of knitting lately. I thoroughly enjoy it, especially because it is something you can do hanging on the couch when out of energy.
The last knit I got myself into was the Mystery Knit Along from Stephen West, the Speckle and Pop MKAL. 
I went on a search for some lovely yarn with no wool in it, as it turns out I am allergic to wool and cannot wear alpaca either (I can knit with it, but what use is it when you cannot wear it afterwards?).
After a while I found The Mermaids Purse Yarns and she was so kind to custom dye me some yarn for this MKAL. You can bet I will be back to buy more!


Unfortunately I accidentally threw away all the pictures of my phone, so I had to screenshot my IG pictures and they are a bit tiny, but you get the idea...
I will tell more about this project in another vlog, once the shawl is finished.
For now I will only tell you that you need 63 (!) stitch markers in clue #3 and I didn't have that much. So I went and made some (33). I thought I would have plenty. Well, I did have enough, but having one left is not really plenty, right?
Because someone asked how I did it I sat down today and made another one and took some pictures. At first I planned a tutorial for this blog but in the end it turned out into a real UrbanStylePattern. It is FREE and available at my Payhip account.

Voor jou, een gratis beschrijving hoe je deze leuke steekmarkeerders moet maken. Ik kocht de meeste kralen bij de Xenos. Ga naar mijn Payhip account en daar kun je hem gratis downloaden. Je vindt een Engelse en een Nederlandse versie!
