Caught in the Wild: Exchanging Fire Stitch Markers

I’ve been shown several photos recently of Exchanging Fire stitch markers “in the wild.” I thought I’d share some of the images that have been “caught” recently so you can see them in action!

This cute Polaroid of the Red Riding Hood stitch markers was taken by Alena, aka buters on Ravelry, who made a pair of Straightforward Mitts:


Mizpah, also known as on Ravelry, has acquired a brightly hued collection that she took for a jaunt into the woods. Pictured below are La Vie En Rose and A Moment of Honey:

Mizpah went knitting with fairy tales that day as well, and the The Frog Prince and Princess and the Pea stitch markers featured here are hanging from her aptly named Mizpah shawl:

Vicki, also known as nonaofsav on Ravelry, shows off a lovely little one-off stitch marker from the Wild Child sampler collection on her Lilla koftan baby sweater:

And these “wild” needle buddies have been tamed on bugnursebrenda‘s sets of DPNs!

I love seeing how people are enjoying their goodies, so thank you for sharing! If you’ve got more “in the wild” shots you’d like to share with me, I’d love to see them. You can share with me on Instagram and Twitter, or send me a photo on Ravelry or Etsy. Maybe I’ll share a bunch of images in a future blog post. Thanks again!

New ways to keep your notions organized

I’ve got some brand new accessories in the Exchanging Fire shop for those of you notions lovers! These are two new ways to keep yourself organized.

First up are these sweet little notions holders called Poppers. These round little hamster-ball-style cases are perfect for keeping different stitch marker sets organized. Or use Poppers to keep those extra bits and bobbles in your bag organized – put a group of safety pins in one and some leftover scrap yarn in another to keep it from being tangled.

The second goodie I have for you today are these brand new Needle Buddies DPN holders, designed specially for small needle sizes, that come in a variety of adorable animal shapes. They are squeezable and soft and stretch comfortably to fit various needle sizes.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this peek at the brand new goodies in my shop! I have been listing new stitch marker sets during April and will continue to roll out new designs for the whole month of May so watch Exchanging Fire for new fun stuff!
