Quick Knitting Project

I was asked by the ladies at my local yarn shop, the Fiber House, to help make some samples for the shop. They were looking for gift items that could be done up quickly. The pattern comes from the book “One Skein Wonders” and instead of the suggested perle cotton I used some gorgeous Karabella Vintage Cotton in a pretty green. Knitted Lace BookmarkThe one on the right is made exactly like the pattern in the book and the one on the left is a minor modification to give the bookmark pointed ends. The beads were added after they were blocked and starched. This knitted up very quickly, I made the first one in about an hour and a half while watching TV. If you didn’t want to add beads, you could just as easily make a tassel from the left over yarn, or from some pretty silk ribbon in matching or contrasting colors.

I have plenty of other knitting projects to do before Christmas, so I’d best be getting after them.

Until next time…
