i finished a blue bookmark today. cast on 20 (fingering weight yarn on US2 needles), knit for like 6 inches or so then decrease as you would if you were making one of those diagonal dishcloths (http://www.knitlist.com/98gift/ttdishcloth.htm). bind off, add a tassel and ta-da! a quick, easy bookmark.
only problem: i forgot to take a pic before i gave it away. and i got a new (to me) digital camera today. DUH!!
the good thing is that i have another blue one on the needles, in a lovely lacy pattern. so as soon as i 1) get some more knitted so you can actually see the pattern and 2) learn how to download pics from the camera to my 'puter, i'll be posting a picture of the lacy blue loveliness.
happy sunday, er, monday, or whatever day it is.
maybe that's my clue to go to bed.
