See my little barrette holding the excess yarn from my cast on? It holds better than a rubber band which is what I used to use.
I also placed an order for a filet crochet bookmark book and some little extras; steel hooks for the size needed for the bookmarks in the pattern book etc. I ordered from Annie's who I have never ordered from before.....
So, it was back to the drawing board...literally. I did want to design this year...just not under pressure.
I had purchased some Christmas variegated thread a few weeks ago and thought this would make a nice bookmark......WRONG!
I hope your lists look better than mine.
I just had an evil thought...I could put out the word that I need "test knitters"......OMG, that's really evil....I should be ashamed...so very ashamed.....LOL!
Have a great week and Happy Trails (of perfect stitches)!
