Spotted in the wild is the Modified Ribwarmer. As part of the program to introduce handknits into the naturalised environment I took the Ribwarmer to Niagara Falls. (American Side) We spent a peaceful morning watching tourists, breathing in rejuevenating negative ions, and knitting. When it started to become crowded and litter-y it was relaxing to toodle down the road listening to podcasts. I especially enjoyed Carpe Lanam. (And I'm not just saying that because one of my essays was on the show once). I am very impressed with how professional some of the podcasts sound now, but without losing that Cafe feeling.
The stitchmarkers were made with coilless pins, available from Patternworks, Knitpicks, or at a Big Box store that starts with W. (I never actually seen them at a LYS). The hardest part was finding number beads. I finally met with success at Michael's Craft store. It was part of a cute kit to make necklaces for stuffed animals. So a devoted mother could make stitch markers and then give the rest of the beads to the wee ones for their craft day. After threading the beads on I put a tiny crimp into the backside of the pin so that the beads would stay on the pin when it was unclasped. Simple and fun.
