Bookmark KAL
 
Hello everyone :waving:
I am :knitting: away at my christmas gifts and I have started a knitted bookmark and I thought it would be fun to make this a KAL.
You can use any pattern you want!!

I'm in :)
 
Hi esiuol!

I think it's a very nice idea to knit a bookmark, because I enjoy both reading and knitting so much!

So...I'm in :) This is my first KAL and also the first bookmark I knit, so I'm very eager to start this :drool:

This evening I will finish the scarf that is still on my needles and then from tomorrow on I can concentrate on knitting and look for a nice pattern and yarn.

What kind of bookmark are you knitting?

Cynamar 04-24-2008 07:27 PM

Is this a bookmark KAL or a knit-anything-and-talk-to-me KAL?

Findus 04-28-2008 04:55 AM

Cyanmar, what's so wrong about a bookmark KAL?

Anyway, I started knitting my bookmark yesterday. The pattern I use can be found here , but I'm knitting it without the tassel.

I actually just completed a bookmark for a mother's day present to go in a book I got for her. I will post pics later!

Hi Findus,
The bookmark I am starting with is a Elegant Bookmark from a knitting digest magazine that my friend let me borrow. I like the pattern you are doing that will be my next one.

Thank you for the link that is definately going on my list of things to do its so pretty :lol:

Nice that you like the pattern I chose, esiuol and Pauline! :waving:

I'm knitting it in slightly shining, royal blue yarn that is really slippery.
Somehow I must have done a mistake in the pattern because I had to many stiches at the end of one line... So I tryed to unravel two lines to find the mistake, but while doing that I must have pulled to much so that I really lost the control of the stiches and couldn't "catch" them anymore... :shrug:

I had already knitted half of the bookmark and was really angry with me that I had to start all over again... :wall:

But now I'm again half done and I think I really like to knit lace :)
I hope I will finish my bookmark in the next days so that I can send it home to my mum as a present for mother's day. :balloons:

I had some unexpected freetime and just finished my bookmark. :woohoo:

I fixed it on a towel for blocking and shot a picture to show you

edit: seems like I'm just not able to include the picture to this post, so you get a link to my picasa album:
