ERASABLE Stitch Markers and Sets - Preview!

Erasable backside, "Accio Hook" on the font!
THE OFFICIAL GIMPY HOOKER SHOP LAUNCHES ON ETSY NEXT WEEK!

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE - these are so fun to make!

In our new Gimpy Hooker Shop on Etsy, there will be a line of custom themed and beaded stitch markers for both crochet and (gasp!) knitting. The clasps are big enough, so work for both.

Plus - I developed a line of ERASABLE stitch/project markers that are not on the market anywhere. Using household stuff, you can record hook size, row, pattern name, whatever will fit - and then wipe it clean over and over! Guaranteed to work or money back! SO EXCITED! Did I mention I'm excited????  Here are a few samples of what's coming...

The Men's Crochet Scarf Blues & Holiday Gifts

Overlay sc striping! Made for my Dad. Used Homespun and Caron Simply Soft.

Everything for the guys ended up blue! Not on purpose, just ended up that way. I "made" (or, rather he played along) my husband model this scarf created for my brother. This is what happened:


 He was a good sport (kind of), and after about 30 pictures I finally got a decent one:
