little socks bookmark

Look! Look! I have a finished object!

OK… so it’s not a very big finished object. But it’s an object. And it’s finished.

The idea for the tiny little socks bookmark I borrowed from the free pattern on Cat Bordhi’s website. I made my own pattern up as I went along. The yarn is a bit of Wildfoote left over from the Waffles With Brown Sugar socks I made last year. It only took a few yards. US#3 Inox gray needles.

Mary Thomas Knitting Book

It was fun and fast — my idea of a great knitting TV knitting project. I’m not sure I like the gusset-and-flap heel. Simple short row heels might work better. I think I’ll do another one that way and see. I also might have used smaller needles, but my #2’s are busy right now.

The bookmark is posing on Mary Thomas’s Knitting Book. This is one of my favorite references, even though it was first published in 1938. Ms. Thomas covers the basics thoroughly but economically, and I always learn something new every time I open this book up. (Clicking on that link takes you to Amazon.)

      In this age of loony leaders
      And blatant tommyrot,
      Do you feel you can distinguish
      Hussein and who is not?
