We're all right out straight these days and nothin's worse than losin' yuh place in yuh handwork.  With these cunnin' lil stitch markers, you'll stay wicked organized, Bub!  Custom made for PortFiber by Katrinkles.  

Each stitch marker has a Maine saying on one side and the outline of the state of Maine on the other... excepting for "hard tellin'...not knowin'" which couldn't fit on just one side.

Available individually or you'll get a card of all seven if you know what's good for ya! (Newer set of 7 includes "Wicked good!" instead of "Wicked, Bub!"... though you can purchase "Wicked, Bub!" individually while supplies last.)
