A new addiction socks!

I came across the wonderful blog of Winwick Mum and I was hooked! I’ve never knit socks before so I thought it would be a new challenge and it’s certainly addictive.


This is the pattern I am following http://winwickmum.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/basic-sock-pattern-and-tutorial.html It’s a really easy pattern to follow and if you get stuck there are great photo tutorials to look at.

However, I decided I need to make some sparkly knitting marker to help me on my way! 


Out came my collection of beads and tiger tail beading wires to create my stitch markers.

I measured approximately 2″ of wire for each marker folded over the wire to form a loop making sure it fit over my knitting needle then added the crimp beads and my choice of beads. Once the crimp beads were squashed and the wire trimmed I was ready to use them. Easy to do and quick to make!
