#3 Now for the knitting content:
I am going to try to seam some mitered squares together today. My plan is to crochet them together.
I watched a video or two on line and the tutorials were good. I think I need more coffee before I attempt this -
I'm preparing for some car knitting next week. Mitered squares seem to be the choice at this juncture. We'll see what I think after I seam the above mentioned squares together today.
After knitting one bookmark I am hooked. Pun intended. There will most definitely be more made for the winter Holidays. I used the BACKBONE Bookmark pattern , free on Ravelry. Originally Kiersten Brandt's pattern on www.knitoneblogtwo.com.
I had knitted one other bookmark, years ago. It was a tiny long stocking and it was adorable. However, I am not into all those little turns on tiny circulars right now. If my square connections fail, I can knit bookmarks in the car right??
(Guess what I am listening to this morning?? Lionel Riche's Tuskegee music. He sings duets with many other vocalists. All that wonderful old music, new again. Deep River Woman with Little Big Town......for one. Check it out!)
That's all my rambling for today. Feel free to ramble back...
