Amazonite Knitting Stitch Markers by Lavender Hill Knits
Gemstone beads have long been believed to have metaphysical/healing qualities and are often used during meditation. Some are thought to bring about wisdom, strength, energy, luck, and healing to name a few. For me knitting is kind of meditational (is that a word?), so I thought…hmmm…it might be interesting to make up some stitch markers with gemstones and combine my love of knitting with love for gemstones, it seemed like a natural combination! I love having a set of gemstone markers on my needles and concentrating on what the little stones might have the ability to do. Whether you are a skeptic or a believer, one thing is for sure, they are wonderful little pieces of nature to have on your needles!!
Amazonite: Known as the "hope" stone. Believed to have a calming effect on the soul and spirit. Also believed to harmonize different motivations and interests by bringing truth to light without emotionality. Stones are light grayish-green to medium grayish-green.
You will receive 6 markers made with 12mm puffed flat irregular square stones that range in color as stated above, and one marker made with a 10mm opaque gold Czech glass faceted round bead attached to a gold earwire to use as an end of row/round marker. Markers are made with gold beading wire and gold plated beads. They are like jewelry for your knitting needles!
Stitch markers are available in two loop sizes:
MEDIUM = fit up to a size 8 (5mm) needle
LARGE = fit up to a size 13 (9mm) needle
I love these markers because they have no wire ends, will not snag your yarn, will not separate like split rings can, slip easily between needles and will not scratch wood or bamboo needles. They are very light and are perfect for lace knitting projects or any knitting! They make a very special gift for a knitter or for yourself.
Item ships via first class mail in a bubble mail which takes about 3-5 days in the US.
Items shown in the photos other than the stitch markers are not included.
