Ohh how beautiful these stitch markers are! They really are like jewelry! http://www.vanillalotus.etsy.com/ has graciously sent in beautifully handcrafted beaded stitch markers for your knitting and crocheting pleasure! Yes, these markers can be used for both!! I absolutely adore the simple elegance of everything in her shop.
I have some white angora yarn I will be knitting into a gift soon and I'm really pining after some of these to use with it! Oh imagine the visual delight of sunlight glinting off of these crystal beads as you click away your favorite pattern.
*sigh*

Oh my goodness, I'm trying really hard not to buy the Candy Apple Washcloths, they may be mine by later...Just wanted you guys to see them first. I don't crochet well and never use cotton, but I LOVE these things!!! Well, they aren't stitch markers, but they are fiber...really nice.

While I do like all of the bright little stitch markers, what really caught my attention was the lilac and ivory charm bracelet! So pretty!

llamalady said...

The blueberry stitch markers are my favorites. I like the clasps you use, too.

I love the sea foam stitch markers - I am completely addicted to pretty stitchmarkers and it is the one thing I have not attempted yet to make myself, lol.

Pumpkinmama said...

I too became instantly smitten with the lilac and ivory charm bracelet, it takes my breath away!

Sarah said...

Ooohh, I really love the lilac and ivory bracelet. I could see wearing that with everything!!

evergreenknits said...

Yay, count me in! These are all beautiful stitch markers, and I especially like the ones that have the open-and-close clasps. That's really unusual and useful. My favorites are in the blue-green-purple tones, like 'lilac' and 'prince stitch.'

p.s. I just posted about this contest on WiKnit (http://wiknit.blogspot.com)

They really are like jewelry! So pretty. I think maybe my favorite are the Sea Foam stitch markers, or maybe Tainted. And the bacelets are lovely!

Oh my goodess I love the idea of those 'Candied Peaches' markers. They are adorable, I love the use of buttons for things other than buttons. I also really dig the 'aztec' markers because they're they same color I use in a lot of my yarns.

Good job Pedras! I'll be faving her shop as well, I have some knitter friends who might get holiday presents from her. :)

I looked at all her stitch markers, but the ones that really caught my eye were the Sea Foam Stitch Markers. They're beautiful, just like little earrings! :-)

Turtle said...

the washcloths and markers are beautiful! But the color of the seafoam really caught my eye. The sparkle they have!!! I will definately link back to them! very nice, lovely!

squiggi said...

Love the candy cane stitch markers.
So appropriate for this time of year.

Sirah said...

I love the little stitch markers and that she bothers to make them usable for crocheters! So many shoppeople forget that we exist!

And she has flourite on one of them... it's one of my old time favorites! I'll look forward to seeing what else she comes up to put in the etsy shop in future!

wenat said...

The streams stitch markers are beautiful! And thanks for the fun contest, too!

Darcys Knotty Knitter said...

Jenny M said...

Those stitch markers are all so beautiful! The blue skies are so bright and happy :-)

Sharon Rose said...

Being a cobalt blue fanatic, I like the Blue Skies set. :) Love the fasteners, very pretty and practical!

Sharon Rose said...

OMG! I take it back - I just got a better look at that white charm bracelet... *swoon*

ikkinlala said...

I think my favourite thing is the Streams Stitch Markers.

I'm in love wirth "Pop"--which look Christmas-y to me--although i feel in love with MANY things in there, What a beautiful shop!

Elena said...

I've had my eye on this shop for some time! All of the stitch markers look spectacular. From the currently available selection I like these -- http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16652131

Beverly said...

I love her Blueberry Stitch Markers! Plus, her prices are great too.

Mel said...

I am in *love* with the gears stitch markers! I'm so not a "girly-girl", so these really strike a chord in me to be both feminine without being girly! Great job! And beautiful too!

Jennifer said...

Wow... LOVE the vanillalotus stitch markers! I'm a fan of green and the subtle variations in these markers are such a tease. :)

puddintain said...

WOW do I ever love the Candy Apple Washcloths. They would look delicious in a basket with some handmade soaps on the bed in my guest room this holiday. Perhaps a sprig of fresh holly on the side. The color just pops!

I love the lilac & ivory charm bracelet- though I love then all, make s.m. too, use the same findings....greatm inds......Good luck, thanks for hosting a give-away, fixing to link to your site for my second chance, but nevertheless thank you for sharing your things!

Mary Beth said...

these stitch markers are perfect because they won't get lost and they won't snag your yarn. I have a problem with the plastic ones coming off on their own and then I not only lose my place on the piece I'm crocheting but I have to find the little plastic ring.

Janis said...

What beautiful craftsmanship! Even though I knit my own washclothes, I love the quality of those crocheted beauties - complete with sewn on tag. Once you use hand-crocheted or hand-knit washclothes, you'll never be happy with anything else! (And such a deal for the price!)

That said, my real hankering is for the lilac & ivory charm bracelet. You could hide a couple of stitch markers in there to be ready when needed.

lacy said...

I can't quite decide whether I like the citrus or carnival the most... And they are all beautiful :)
