Easy Knitted Bookmarks

I’ve been making a lot of cute little projects recently as a kind of treatment for my cabin fever, and as I was looking at the little stash I’ve collected, I realized, Hey, these would be really cool to share on my blog. The mind of a blogger works in strange ways.

Among my stash is a set of knit bookmarks made from a ball of tie-dyed yarn I found at the bottom of my yarn basket. One is in seed/moss stitch, one is done in a kind of lace stitch, and the last one has a cable running down the middle. All of them are easy, quick, and perfect to make as a last minute gift.

It’s finally started to get warmer here– I didn’t even have to wear a winter coat today! I’m really looking forward to being able to spend time outside without freezing to death, although the weather has brought me and Netflix very close. I hope wherever you are, it’s starting to get nicer out.

Keep watching for my next posts– I’ll see you on Tuesday.
