Etsy Friends and Stitch Markers

Made especially for me by Charlotte 
One of the best benefits of my working on my Etsy shop has been meeting wonderful other shop owners.  Today I would like to introduce you to Charlotte.  She hand makes beautiful hypoallergenic jewelry with gem stones from her shop in Montana.  I recently made a swap with her she 'purchased' hand knit baby items from me and I 'purchased gorgeous garnet and 925 silver stud earrings from her.  I have wanted garnets for every. They are my birthstone and I love simple studs that I can leave in for days on end and not have to fiddle are fuddle around looking for earrings on my way to work in the mornings.
Inside the awaited package delivering my earrings was a gorgeous set of stitch markers made especially for me to use in my knitting.  I have only every used plastic circle stitch markers so these are like HEAVEN.  They sparkle and shine and glimmer and are so silky smooth.  I used them with homespun yarn and they didn't get snagged and helped me keep track of the thumb gusset I was making on these blue fingerless mitts.
Thank you Charlotte your wonderful.

Etsy is great and those stitch markers are beautiful.
The only complaint I have about Etsy is that so many vendors only ship within the US. Other that that - I love it.
