If you have iTunes you can find find her podcast by searching for Knitting Pipeline. If you don't have iTunes, click here to get to her website. Since you are a piper, I think you will enjoy it.

I'm sure it's nice to have wheels again. Today it is something important to have.

Well, Massachusetts isn't so far from Canada that there might not be a little bit of influence, eh?

Do you listen to the podcast Knitting Pipeline? Paula is a knitter and piper also.

I do have several beaded markers. I don't use them nearly as often as I use my split rings or jump rings. Often I will use a couple of beaded markers to mark a center stitch or border stitches so as I approach it, it is obvious what is coming up. Most of the ones I have are lighter, though I do have a few that are on the heavier side. The ones I will use depends on the project I'm working on. If I'm working on openwork lace, I choose some that won't get caught in the lacework.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that markers are just like anything else in knitting. Each person has personal preferences. And I will say that as the years go by, my preferences change. This is very obvious in the collection of needles I have. And sometimes there is a complete circle in my preferences, so I typically don't get rid of anything. Of course, I could be somewhat of a pack rat.

Mary, you have that right! For quite awhile, my knitting time went down. Although I'm not active in all of the forums, I am a member of all of them. I could really make it my job to respond to all the comments. If only I could convince KP that it would be worth paying me.

Have a wonderful evening it is still early here.  I also love beading I had a beed store in my house but now I just love to knit, crochet with beads, spin and just knit.
