A stitch marker in time?

I made some stitch markers today. I have a stash of little tins and I thought they'd look nice in there. I'm looking for things to do that I can sell so that I can ease myself gently back into work.
This is what they look like so far:

I'd love to hear your comments on them.

I don't know what are "stitch markers (I am looking for my dictionary, but I have lost it , I suppose. I ask to my son who learns english, but he is a teenager and says "grmn" when I speak to him)
What I can see on the photo, it is like earrings. You know , in France , actually, these have a lot of success, when they are handmade.
You do a lot of things with your hands, I see.

Hi sborja - stitch markers are for when you're knitting and you need to remember which stitch or which row you're on. They get used a lot when you make socks.

I had a look on your blog - your beret looks lovely :)

Good! Stitch markers are good when you knit beret (I am knitting one for my first daughter). My markers are not so pretty as yours!
To answer to your question, you can sell it. Have you markets near your home? I mean markets outside, with people who sale vegetables, honey, chicken, meat, but also clothes; we have some in the town near my village, and I like to go, because the colors, the sounds and the smells...
Sorry if it is not very well said, my english words are deep in my brain..

Hi sborja - I have some for sale on Ebay and I might try to sell them in the knitting shops.
We're starting to get more farmers markets in the UK and it's a good thing as our markets were dying out for a bit. We have big supermarkets which steal the buiness form smaller shops and markets - not good. France seems to have a better balance and manage to have hypermarkets and markets as well.
We have lots of craft markets though and I might try to sell things there when I feel better.

Hope you're well - Stacey :)

Hello and welcome to the UK knitters webring :)

You caught my eye because I had ME/CFS from the age of 29 to 34, and still suffer a little when I overdo it. I don't think I could manage a 'normal' life but my husband has set up my life for me so that it works for me ;)

I love your stitchmarkers. The only ones I have so far are the freebies from the front of Simply Knitting, tut tut. Will be asking for some for Mother's Day no doubt :)

Now I'm off to read the rest of your blog, but just wanted to empathise re the ME. If you want to talk about it more any time just let me know.
