Rhyolite 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!!
Ryolite: Also known as rainforest jasper, it is a stone of protection, regeneration and general healing. A stone of resolution, bringing the unresolved to completion (great for use with the unfinished items you keep telling yourself to complete! ;-) Also is a wonderful stone for meditation and balancing energies.
Stones are very high quality and have a beautiful mixture of light peach to deep peach on a green/gray background. They are like nature's works of art for your needles!
You will receive 6 markers made with 12mm flat round stones that range in color as stated above, and one removable marker made with a 13mm x 11mm hand shaped silver plated bead to use as an end of row/round marker. Markers are made with silver beading wire, silver plated beads and silver plated earwires.
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.
