For a couple of months now you've all been getting these adorable stitch markers in your box from Strangefruit- but did you know that proprietress Kim also makes custom fiber bags? She's graciously giving away this beauty of a bag here on the blog!

Shopping online- I can't think of a better way to spend a hot sticky summer Wednesday!

Gotta love a good bag. The floral print version is also really nice! I especially like the separate sections for various tools.

Her work is stunning. I am torn between the be still my heart pendant or the stick candy purple lamp work beads.

I love the "Fire of my Eye" needle candy. So pretty!

SJS said...

Hey, neat! There are some really clever things in this shop, especially the Andean Plying Tool and those circular needle stitch stoppers. Brilliant thinking!

Kate (KnitsInClass) said...

I love the stitch stoppers - as a frequent user of circular needles, these would come in handy.
I love the Cherry My Darling version.

Tia said...

I haven't made any necklaces out of stitch markers, but what a great idea!

I'm hungering for "oh my stars" and "fire of my eye", though it would be really handy to have an Andean plying tool, too...

One Sheep said...

The Stitch Stopper - Bloomming Violets is great. I'm always just poking the needles into either my knitting or yarn, and sometimes splitting fibers along the way. A bad habit I need to break!

Kristin said...

I like the purple stars. :)

Kristen said...

I love the Andean Plying tool, I can't really do it on my hands because I have 2 young children and could get interrupted any time, this would be awesome! ~ Angela

I need "Needle Candy - Green and Light Pink"

pocketsize said...

Fire of my Eye, without a doubt. Although I fear I would get too distracted by the pretty, and forget to knit!

(pocketsize also on Rav)

I think the stitch stoppers are a great idea. Haven't seen those before!

InJuneau said...

The stitch stoppers are a great idea!

Also, although I haven't turned stitch markers into jewelry (yet!), one person I know of makes crochet stitch markers that would work beautifully as earrings.
