Set of 10 snag-free stitch markers in Dark as Night Black wire with Cool-Whip White glass beads

Availability: 18 Available



"On a dark desert highway, (Cool Whip) in my hair

Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air

Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light

My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim

I had to stop for the night"

Back in the days before the internets, we could only conjecture what the lyrics were. Hence, there were many unintentionally misheard lyrics that made it into history. Also, considering that even today, we're still unsure what the heck Glenn Frey, Don Felder, and Don Hedley were actually singing about, the idea that Cool whip would be an alternative for hair mousse is certainly acceptable.

Much time has passed since 1978, and the interpretations of the song's meaning range far and wide. I think that the real question is: What the heck is a colita? Obviously, they are rather fragrant. After a brief internet search, a denizen of soc.culture.spain wrote: “Colitas is [spanish for] "little tails", but here the songwriters are referring to ‘colas,’ the tip of a marijuana branch, where it is more potent and with more sap (said to be the best part of the leaves).”

It WAS 1978, after all.

So whatever your interpretation of this amazing song is - or if you have your own fond memory of "colitas" - this set of 10 snag-free stitch markers will put you in the mind of pink champagne on ice. Made from coated copper jump rings, the glass seed bead is glued over the joint to ensure smooth moving. All stitch markers are shipped in a zipper bag in a padded envelope.

The MEDIUM size fits needles up to size US11/8mm.

The SMALL size fits needles up to size US8/5mm.
