Stitch Marker Sets for Stephen West’s Slipstravaganza MKAL 2020!

  • Silver stitch markers with neon beads.

Those of us who LOVE Stephen West — and frankly, who DOESN’T??? — all wait in slightly frantic anticipation for his yearly Mystery Knit-A-Long, that KAL that mystifies and delights us every year! Well, this year he did NOT disappoint, and from what I understand, you’re going to need at least 54 stitch markers to finish that sucker! So to assist you with that, I have curated sets of 60 markers for you to complete the MKAL — 54 to use, and an extra six to invariably get lost/fall into the sofa cushions/get stuck into play-dough by you toddler (true story!).

All 60 markers will match and be in needles size US6/4mm, which should accommodate the needs of the pattern. The varieties available are:

JUST VANILLA, LIKE TERMINATOR 2 – Nice Bland Bright Silver wire with Crazy Killer Mercurial Futuristic Assassin Silver glass beads.

HE MEANT ‘STAY BLONDE,’ PONYBOY – Stay Gold wire with Nothing Gold Can Stay glass beads.

HIP TO BE SQUARE – Bright SuperTrouper Spotlight Silver wire in a square shape with Awesome ’80s! Neon glass beads.

Each set is handmade just for you! I am NOT affiliated with Stephen West in any way. I just love his stuff!

Nickel free.

Yank Your Yarn Stitch Markers Brings on Gift Sets!

  • Red yarn with silver and gold stitch markers.

For those of us who are so lucky to have a knitter in their lives, the biggest quandary of all is WHAT TO GET A KNITTER AS A GIFT. Obviously, a knitter LOVES yarn, needles, tools, etc… but it’s so hard to work out what the best yarn would be, what kind of needles a knitter prefers. Gift certificates kind of work, but it’s always fun to have something to unwrap — in particular if that something to unwrap is SHINY! Or perhaps you need a gift for your knitting self, in which case, I say SHINY!

Yank Your Yarn is now carrying four different gift sets that knitters would love to receive. Each set contains 25 markers: two sets of 10 markers in different sizes (random colors) and five movable markers, in a handy storage box.
