I've started my first crochet Christmas present - I had no idea who this was going to be for at first but it has since been claimed.
It's a spiral lap afghan from a book of specialty patterns - you work with two colors at once and you need two markers, which as you can maybe tell I was using bits of black yarn.
I kept pulling the yarn out by accident and it got really annoying! So I went on etsy and bought these:
Tooooooooooooooooo cute! and they work great!
