Congratulations to Jan, the winner of the stitch markers, who wrote,"Beautiful stitch markers! I learned to crochet first as well. I bought a book and taught myself when I was in high school. My favorite knitting projects are fingerless mitts knitted from my small amounts of handspun yarn. I love to make them for my family and for gifts."
Jan, send me your mailing address, and I'll get a dozen of these mailed out.
You can make your own stitch markers, easy as pie. :)
