Stitch Marker Exchange

I am part of a wee little swap called the Stitch Marker Exchange. The only thing that you have to send to your partners are 5 stitch markers and you can have as many partners as you want. It is up to you if you want to send anything extra.
I sent out my markers at the beginning of May and have just received my first set of markers back.

These are from Lynda. Along with the markers were coffee and some chocolate. My boy Liam aw the chocolate and immediately wanted to "share". Ha!

The flash washed the markers out a bit so I took them outside to the natural light so that we could see their beauty.
Thanks Lynda! I love them!

...and again I say unto you: EARRINGS. That's all I can think of when I see stitch markers. Perhaps it's because I don't know exactly how to use them... D. hides his from me.

Learning to use them has been the challenge.

And, unto T, I say: Magpie! Back! Shiny things aren't all earrings!

How many stitch markers does one need? Many I suppose if you have a lot of WIP. These must be to add to Your growing collection.

I still am not clear on how to use them. Jackie explained it once but I am visual and need to see to understand.
