Stitch Markers

I, too, am enjoying Cat Bordhi's book, New Pathways for Sock Knitters. I have my first project all planned out. It will be the Coriolis pattern in Wollmeise for my daughter.

My conclusion? I really like my little markers, but the stitch markers on Etsy look like a great value now!!

I'm sure the Etsy markers are a great value, but no one has a set of markers like yours! I think they're lovely. Wanna help me make a set?? :-)
