Pretty, Shiny, Lovely

Look at these! Aren't they wonderful? These stich markers were a birthday gift from my friend, Lynn. I just love handmade gifts. I love the variety of the beads and the colors!
In addition to the stitch markers, Lynn gave me a skein of Araucania - Azapa. It's so soft and silky to the touch. The silk gives this yarn such a great sheen. I've already started a shawl. I just hope it's enough. I'm also using the stitch markers for this (since I need so many!). And the markers are so nice. The weight of them keeps them out of the way and the jump rings are nice and big which makes the transfer from needle to needle easy.
