Things Stitched

May 24, 2006


I joined a bookmark group called Bookmark Traders. If you like bookmarks in any way, I suggest checking out this Yahoo Group. So, I decided to knit a bookmark. That was not easy! The thread kept slipping off the needle and the needle was so small. I used a size 2 US and found the pattern called "Lace Bookmark". I used some crochet thread I had and might try a little thicker yarn next time. Since knitting was not fun, I thought I'd let my embroidery machine do all the work. I bought a beautiful Lilac design and let the machine go. It turned out a little small for me, only 4 inches high. I'll enlarge it and try again.
