ad hoc Loom Knitting Stitch Markers

SO sorry to be absent!  The Advent Goblins have us hopping right now.  I can't show you what Christmas gifts we're making - too many of our recipients read this blog - but I wanted to share this little tip for those who enjoy loom knitting.

Some patterns call for a stitch marker or peg marker.  Stitch markers made for crochet are the kind needed for loom knitting, because they can be removed without damaging your work or lifting stitches off the pegs. But if you decide to start a new loom knitting project in the middle of the night, which I'm sure I've never done, and realize that the pattern you have chosen calls for a stitch/peg marker, you might not be in the mood to jump out of bed and drive half an hour to the only place in town where you can buy a stitch/peg marker in the middle of the night.  Or so I've heard.

So ransack your pantry and use a bread bag closure instead.

Bread bag #197?  Inspected by #197?  197 bread bags on the wall?  We may never know....

PS--the thing in the picture was super easy, but with impressive results.  A beginning loom knitter could tackle this.  In a few days I can show you the finished project.  In the meantime, if you want to know about the pattern, send me an email and I'll hook you up.  :)
