Make n’ Tell Challenge: Day 13

Today I did a project that's been sitting on my table since July. We went camping over the 4th of July weekend and the kids found old bits of lost jewelry and a fishing lure around camp. Since they brought them to me while I was knitting, asking what we could do with them, I told them we'd make knitting stitch markers to remember our trip.

The fishing lure got a frog charm (closest thing we could find to camping) and some green beads. I was disappointed that it didn't really come apart anywhere so that I could add more beads. The jewelry bits just got split rings added. The center one is already a bit over the top for a stitch marker and I think will be prone to tangle in the knitting. The bottom set I made from beads I had on hand. I love the bright turquoise color. They are tiny & will be nice for sock projects.

I also finished the afghan square today.

I think I need a new camera, as mine absolutely sucks at these night photos. They are being taken right under my ott light and are still coming out dark.
