Two Sticks And Some String !

This is me, an opinionated, politically progressive Canadian Lace Knitter who's lived and worked in western Canada, and on the east coast of the USA; a multi-skilled person who's been recently re-elected to public office, has a Class One driver's license, a human services professional in direct service, middle and senior management positions, and a MOM!

These are the bookmarks I knit for my two exchange partners, both knit out of two (non-plied) strands of pure silk thread. Margaret Heathman, of Monroe, GA, is receiving the Rose Trellis bookmark on the left. Witt Pratt, of Washington, DC, will be receiving the alternating Madeira Cascade on the right. Knitting info: I always do a single-needle cast-on (although I use both needles parallel, for a softer and non-binding cast-on), slip the first stitch of every row for a beautiful edge (I'm so modest ;-), three rows of seed stitch across the bottom and three seed stitches up each side, for a firm but pretty frame for the bookmarks. I used 1.5 mm stainless steel needles. I've been a member of the bookmark exchange on the Knitted Lace List for about 7 years, and, as all exchange participants, I have a marvellous collection of bookmarks sent to me from around the world. Posted by Picasa
