I was recently commissioned to create two pairs of earrings (aka crochet/knitting stitch markers) celebrating kindred spirits and bosom friends, Anne Shirley and Diana Barry. I had fun creating these earrings, as well as re-reading some of my favourite parts of Anne of Green Gables (while alternately laughing and crying at the funny and sad parts).
Of course, I am also really loving the fact that my customers are happy to think outside the box with me. My stitch marker sets were originally inspired by the fact that I often used my hoop earrings as crochet stitch markers because I didn't have any "regular" stitch markers on hand! So it's great to see that customers are embracing them as both earrings and quirky crochet/knitting supplies. So what do you think - would you use these as earrings or as stitch markers? Or would you do both?
