The end of the year was, as previously mentioned, a bit frantic but I did want to make something personal to tuck into the gifts for Gorgeous Girl’s teachers this year. In the end I settled on making some crocheted bookmarks. This Radiant Rose bookmark was crocheted out of handspun. You can find the pattern here.
I hot glued the rose to a large paperclip.
The second bookmark I made was a bird. I really loved how this turned out, it was lots of fun. Pattern can be found here.
This was made from sock yarn scraps. Many moons ago I made Gorgeous Girl a cardigan from this yarn and there’s still yarn left over. She liked the bird so much she asked for one of her own. I don’t have a picture of that one though.
I like the bird so much that I think when I get back to Papua New Guinea I’m going to make myself one.
