It's time for an update here at ole' stich marker haven. First things first,I am now preparing to launch the NEW stitch markers with sterling silver and chain maille components.
Sets of 5 in Swarovski $15.00
Sets of 5 in Frugal Knitters $10.00 Pictures of like markers in the photo album.
S&H USPS Priority Mail is now $4.05 due to the current hike in shipping charges. I throw in Delivery Confrimation free with every order. S&H is combined, of course.
Contact me at email@example.com with color suggestions, and I'll gladly send you a PayPal invoice. You don't have to be registered with PayPal, you'll just need a major credit card. It's secure, and I'll never see your confidential information!
SECRET PAL INSTRUCTIONS
In case you haven't heard, I offer an additonal 10% discount to participants of SP7. Upon request, I can gift wrap & drop ship stitch markers to your secret pal with a message. Just use the "Special Instructions" field when processing your payment via PayPal, and I will include it with your gift. Of course, no invoice or packing slip revealing your identity and location will be included with your package. Please also include the name of your blog as it appears on the SP7 participant page so I can verify you are indeed a member of this swap.
Your 10% discount applies whether you are shopping for your Pal OR yourself.
INTERESTED IN A SWAP INSTEAD? I have an Amazon Wish List, and I'd be more than willing to trade a set of stitch markers for a goody or two. Let me know if this tickles your fancy, and we can negotiate via e-mail.
WHAT'S NEXT, RINGSLINGER OF DOOM? After the inventory is gone, I'll start laying out finer and funkier stitch markers. You will see sterling silver, chain maille, handmade artisan lampwork beads, gemstones, and more. Very exciting things are coming off of the work bench. I can't wait to show them off!

The response for SP7 orders has been amazing! I have been quite surprised at the number of orders coming in. Very cool!
I just want to take time right now to remind everyone that I really do make each set by hand, and they are made to order. By made to order, I mean that I make them as orders come in, since each set is custom made.
During the weeks of 1/20 and 1/27 many orders came in and I am working on them. When they are ready, they'll be shipped out in one batch.
I'm still working on orders, and I'm almost caught up! Yippee! I'm having so much fun being a part of SP7! I expect that all orders placed as of this post will be shipped out no later than Friday. All shipping and handling charges will be refunded individually. My policy is to ship USPS Priority to insure that you receive your stitch markers quickly. If you don't get them as quickly as planned, then I don't think you should have to pay for it!
Thanks so much for your support!
UPDATE 2, Feb 15
As you may know, in my personal blog & knitting group, I have joined the fight against Breast Cancer. Last year, Melanie and I represented the Ya-Yas in Race for the cure. This year, I'll be doing it bigger and better at the Breast Cancer 3 Day benefiting the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The 3 Day takes place in October, but the race is actually the conclusion of a 8 month journey. Throughout my journey, I will be training very hard to walk 60 miles, and I will also be doing some major fund raising. And I need your help! Soon, I will be launching special stitch markers. In lieu of payment, you can make a donation to my personal fund raising page held over at the 3day website. Links and more information will be coming soon.

KellyK, a moderator of KnittingHelp.com, guest blogs to share her review of DeniseKnits! Stitch Markers...
I must say Ms. Denise has created a st marker convert! No more yarn barf loopies for me! Deni's markers, obviously, are absolutely BEAUTIFUL, SPARKLY and UNIQUE, but in addition, they slide so smoothly and they never catch on anything! (That was my greatest fear about using st markers. I feel all better!) One more thing...they are the perfect length. Any longer and they would get in the way of holding your needles comfortably. Any shorter and they wouldn't have enough "heft". I think I'm gonna be a regular customer!
