Supervisor Emma is making sure I don’t slack off! I love to think about the knitting projects that these Serendipity Stitch Markers will be used for, hoping that they make the work in progress even more wonderful to work with!
I'm using the Crochet Clip markers to as reminders for gusset decreases of a clog sock. I am trying to convince Lily not to steal them. She is obsessed with one of the yarns, Cascade Fixation.

About

From Bridal Veils to Stitch Markers?

My goal is to design and make a stitch marker that is high quality, well balanced for ease of use and of course, snag free. I dedicate the same detail to order and quality to Serendipity Stitch Markers as I have given to my Damselfly Studio bridal clients.

Like many, I knit for relaxation and to get away from the world. I am most inspired by lace knitting. That I knit lace is rather a miracle, all things considered. Anyway.

In another life, I designed Bridal Headpieces and Accessories. I still design and sell Bridal Accessories in another shop I have here on Etsy, DamselflyStudio. Because I designed bridal headpieces and have had an established jewelry line for almost 20 years, I had a LOT of beads.

As a knitter, and one who loves knitting lace, you need a lot of stitch markers to help separate the pattern repeats of your project. A large shawl that has over 400 stitches can use a lot of markers, easily 25 - 30 depending on how many stitches are in each pattern repeat! The stitch markers that you generally find at the store are just plain ugly. Serviceable yes, but ugly. Then it hit me...why not make them? So, I got my pliers, wire and beads and started "fiddling" as they say where I am from. Eventually, I discovered that using my jewelry findings made wonderful, snag free bases to put on any drop that I could want. I had plenty of inspiration in my bead stash to get me started! I took the time to perfect which bead size, shapes and types worked the best for a stitch marker that handled easily with lace or other patterned knitting and that would not snag. My markers have had some testing by my knitting friends, as anyone in the knitting night group that lost a marker could depend that I had a few extra with me to come to the rescue!

It was suggested that I sell these markers so after some final design finalization, organization, Knitting Serendipity has been born.

In addition to markers, I plan to add Shawl Pins, Jewelry (so you can match your knitting, these are pretty enough to wear!), Felted Floral brooches and who knows? I don't know all of the future yet. It is coming with Serendipity, to be sure.

Frequently asked questions

Calculated Shipping and Multiple Item Orders

Etsy's Calculated Shipping checkout program does not allow for multiple item shipments. I will manually compute shipping costs and refund costs over $1.00 to you. It is not fair for you to pay double the shipping when the cost may only be an ounce or a bit more!

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! If you would like a set of combined sizes, colors or different quantity, contact me either through a listing or through the shop contact and I will set up a reserved listing for you.

Wholesale availability

Yes! Please contact me. Wholesale prices available to established retail businesses.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Your order will come in an organza pouch, wrapped in attractive printed tissue, tied with a ribbon. If there is anything else you need, please let me know. I am sorry, but I do not have boxes. If you need a multiple item order to be individually wrapped and tagged, just let me know!

Custom Design

Yes! Color combinations can be ordered, custom set sizes, even jewelry! Just ask!
