For Yarn is the Magnet, and My Needles are Steel

  • Purple, blue, pink and green round stitch markers.

“to show the way I feel
(With you I might try) my secrets to reveal
For you are a magnet and I am steel” — Walter Egan, 1977

Yarn has a wonderfully magnetic pull on us fiberistas, and we wouldn’t have it ANY. OTHER. WAY. Until now, all of my stitch markers have been made of colored copper wire, and the thing about copper wire, is that it’s not ferrous — that is, magnetic. But sometimes, you really just want a set of stitch markers that you can casually toss onto a magnet as you’re removing them from a project, or you want a stitch marker that sticks to a magnet when trying to pick them up out of shag carpet (y’all have shag carpet, right??), or you may just want to keep a tin of stitch markers on your fridge. You never know.

These sets of 30 stitch markers are made from iron rings that have been powder coated in an array of colors. The powder coating keeps the metal from rusting, and let’s face it, make the markers look like a basket fulla Peeps. Each ring has a seed bead of Deep Deep Purpley Black glued securely over the join of the rings to keep them snag free on your favorite yarn. Each set comes in its own tin, which not only has a magnet on the inside, but also has a magnet on the outside, so you can attach your tin to all of your kitchen appliances or even the hood or your car, should you feel so… inspired to do so.

The MEDIUM size fits needles up to size US10 / 6mm.
The LITTLE size fits needles up to size US6 / 4mm.
