Our Creative Spaces .... and a Giveaway

After a month of saying.. "I can't remember where I'm supposed to increase" and weeks of increasing in the wrong spots (ugh!)... I finally purchased some stitch markers.
So........ does anyone know what the colours stand for?
Maybe there is a universal standard for the colours??

I'm currently using black to increase but maybe it's supposed to be the green or red or maybe blue??
What's happening in your creative space?   and have you entered my giveaway yet??

  1. I'm afraid I have no idea about the colours, Rie, but I say just make up your own code anyway ;) Aren't they beautiful things? Kx

  2. I have the very same stitch markers, but I am none the wiser as to whether the colours are for certain things or not? I just use them depending on their size and the size of my knitting needles or crochet work. If there are two types of increases, or a change in stitch pattern, then I use different colours to mark those and idiot proof it for myself.

    But if you find out a more specific use for the colours, let me know!

  3. Really? Does each colour mean something? When I was into knitting, a friend made me some stitch markers as she was into jewelery making. I wonder where they've gone to now.

  4. Ha, I didn't even consider that there might be a wrong way to use stitch markers!

    Thanks for stopping by my place. The cards are printed. I drew the illustrations by hand then did the rest in good ol' Illustrator!

  6. Rie, these seriously remind me of baby toys, especially since they look bigger than they really are in this pic. Such great colours.

  11. Swish! I use boring old safety pins for stitch markers. I guess the consensus is you make your own meanings.

    I've been thinking about a de stash, but I am tempted to enter yours anyway (I am seriously short on space) will have to have a look and see what I can giveaway too.

  12. I use these stitch markers all the time. I have no idea about the colour thing. I just use whatever I first grab ;-)
    Hope you find the answer!
