Simple and Clever


The other day I was searching for a large stitch marker to accommodate my large US 15 needles for a project, but to to avail.  While digging in a drawer, I came across this:


Have you ever used one of these?  I've used them to hold sheets of paper together, but I had to look up the actual name, nothing fancy, just called "binder rings".  I'm not sure how I came to acquire this one, but it makes a really fantastic large stitch marker!  It opens too:


I peeked online at some office supply stores and you can get 8 or so for about two dollars...even better!  They make plain metal and rainbow colors too.  It doesn't take much to impress me, so glad for my junk drawer today!
