...a paragon of virtue convinced her godmother to lend her some glass dancing slippers and a stunner of a ballgown and wrangled herself an invite to the event of the season. She bewitched the heir of the realm, put her social-climbing stepmother and stepsisters into hysterics, and then ran away at the crack of midnight, leaving a single abandoned high heel as a testament to her wild ways.
This set of five snag free stitch markers are like miniature jewels for your knitting. The pale blue round faceted glass beads are paired with glittering silver accents, creating a sweet and delicate set of markers that remind me of Cinderella's gorgeous ballgown. A silver 17th-century style dress shoe, much like the one Cinderella would have worn, dangles from one marker to help you mark a special stitch.
Part of my Fairy Tales series, these markers represent the romantic and magical story of Cinderella. There is the traditional evil stepmother, the nasty stepsisters stealing her fortune, and if you follow the Disney version of the story, a bevy of magical creatures all in love with this ridiculously gorgeous scullery maid. Try not to think of what happens after the stiff-upper-lip prince saves her from her life of drudgery, though, as it is probably too boring to contemplate.
The beads are suspended from ultra-thin, nylon-coated stainless steel wire for a delicate, snag-less feeling on your knitting needles. They won't catch on your yarn, and the teardrop-shaped loops cut down the occurrence of ladders in your knitting.
The markers will fit comfortably onto knitting needles up to 6.0 mm (10 US), and are featured in the photos on needles of the same size.
