linen stitch bookmarks

A bookmark is a rather humble object and not one that too many people think about but, how nice to have a pretty one to hold your page. We all know it's sometimes those simple pretty things that make our days all the more sweeter.

The stitch is linen stitch and the project hails from the very same More Last Minute Knitted Gifts I've been babbling about. I'm getting good use of this book. I still have two projects to show you from it. 'Tis the season for quick projects.

One of these was gifted to my Mom today. I hope she likes it as much as I do.

Thanks. I know this yarn is so gorgeous. I have the rest of the skein sitting in a milk glass bowl next to my bed and I don't want to put it away.

I love the color name for this yarn- Dragon. It's by Alchamy

On the back it looks a bit like moss stitch but the front looks more like linen to me.

I am having a heck of a time with this project. I have finely given up. The yarn is so very fine and it is impossible for me to work with. I guess I need to be a much more experienced knitter.

Yours look beautiful.
