Oh! I dunno what to say! ... thank you all so much for your very kind and generous comments.
I'm really sorry not to have acknowledged your threads before now but I've just about slept the clock round since yesterday.
I've been going absolutely :zombie: overboard this past week or two with the bead addiction, finding the right type of product to make into stitch markers.
I wanted to find something a bit different because Simply Knitting magazine has been in touch and told me that they'll be featuring the Countonknit stitch markers in the edition published 28 Feb.
I'll post a couple of pictures here of just some of the new markers, plus a wheeze I had for a stitch holder.
[COLOR=Black]Thank you all so much again for your kind words; it's so encouraging to know that knitters, and KH ers especially, enjoy using my knitting products.

Sorry, the pics aren't the best - I'm just trying out colour backgrounds and whatnots.
