The knitted-in marker

I was teaching my friend to knit recently when I noticed that she’d fallen victim to something that happens to us all now and again: the knitted in marker.


Notice how the black ring is THROUGH her knitting, not just on either side? Because this is her very first knitting project, we decided to leave in in place for now. If she restarts the scarf, it will fall out. If she finishes it … well, we’ll either decorate it with beads or take the scissors to it.

In any event, she’s off to a good career in knitting, learning early that “things happen”! Has it happened to you yet? Share in the comments below!
