Stitch Markers

Happy New Year
to all my subscribers and visitors

I just wondered, what do you use?

I use these ones and they often come off the project without permission, which is frustrating.

Almost complete

Hoorah! I finished knitting my Owl jumper just using Rowan Cocoon.  All I need now is to find 38 small buttons for the owl eyes.

You can see the pattern details on my Ravelry page here.

I confess I am chuffed to bits because I was worried it wouldn't fit me. AND hubby was so impressed he gushed!!!
Before I completed the cable neck section a naughty little kitty got into my knitting bag and undid the stitches, so I had to unpick and re-do some of it, but he's so adorable I couldn't be cross with him for long.

What am I  currently knitting/reading?  Yarn Along 
As the pattern is for teenagers called Teagan by Rowan using their Kid silk mohair yarn. Either I will have to modify the pattern sizing or use a different pattern.

What do you use?

Today I have been knitting and listening to Christmas Music. Bliss!

I spend a lot of time trying to find the best container for my accessories like scissors, needles, row counters, place markers e.t.c.

While I like my transparent zip bag, 
it still all seems messy and unsatisfactory and I thought:

What do you use?

Why not join in my blog hop to share pictures of your needle cases/ notions bag. 
You can add your name to the linky and post any time between now and Christmas. We look forward to seeing what you use. Please tell your friends about this blogfest and use the badge in your sidebar. Thanks
