Next time I'll share photos from our visit to Discovery Place, but for right now I'm going to explain what a stitchmarker is, for a faithful reader who asked...a stitchmarker is used while knitting to mark a row where a specific knitting action should be done...for this project, I would knit in the back of the stitch before each stitchmarker and knit regularly the stitch afterwards. By using 18 stitchmarkers as directed by the pattern, you can knit without having to read the pattern stitch by stitch or count each stitch the entire time. Stitchmarkers have rings that enable you to put them directly onto your knitting needles and then just shift them as you knit. A lot of knitters collect them since there are so many cute, beautiful kinds; and are considered a sort of jewelry for your knitting.
