Bookmark KAL
Hello everyone
I am 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!!

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

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?

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

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.

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

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...

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

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.

I had some unexpected freetime and just finished my bookmark.

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:
