Wavy Feather Bookmark

This bookmark is a really easy pattern -

the hardest part was working with the mercerized cotton thread, because it's so thin
- especially since I'm used to knitting with 3 or 4-ply yarn lately!
~ so I used my bamboo needles, because the stitches kept falling off my aluminum ones.

The site states this was a pattern called Japanese Feather from Barbara Walker's 2nd Treasury, you can find it by clicking *here*.

Lacy Christmas Tree

Finished knitting this up yesterday, for a gift ~ wanted to post a pic. of it before wrapping it up - it is a large size, didn't all fit on my scanner for the photo - but you can get an idea of what it looks like ~
I knit mine in cotton, using a medium-sage green color.

I love this pattern - thank you, Janet! ~
visit the calendar page for Janet's pattern and a larger picture of her lovely lacy cloth.

two cloths

these are two cloths I just finished for our Friday Raffle at work ~
we have *dress-down day* and you pay a dollar, and some of us bring small items in so we draw names to win.

This is not a good picture at all! The top one is the circle cloth, from Andi's Monthly KAL group and the bottom one is the DW cloth by Rhonda at her site ~

I enjoyed making them - just wish they looked better here so you could enjoy them too!
The fallish-colors are perfect at this time of year ~


NOW !***Links are now included to the sites where you can find all the patterns!***

I've been knitting some of my little grand-daughter's favorite things
( *some* of them are her mommy's-my daughter's- favorite things!!
.......after all, Olivia is only 15 months old!!)

Don't have a digital camera to get a very good photo of each cloth -
just did them on my scanner -
but you can get an idea.
Will post the links to the patterns soon for you.

Hope to get a picture of the entire blanket before I wrap it up for Olivia ~
