little socks bookmark

Look! Look! I have a finished object for 2006!

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. It only took a few yards of yarn on US#3 Inox gray needles.

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 yarn is a bit of Wildfoote left over from the Waffles With Brown Sugar socks I made last year.

It was fun and fast — my idea of a great knitting TV knitting project.

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.)
