Knitting something besides socks for a change

Taking break from some sock knitting to make these beautiful bookmarks.

This weekend I bought 40 old Knitter's magazines. These bookmarks are in the Winter 1997 issue. I used to own this issue back in 1997 but many years ago I sold off my Knitter's magazine stash on ebay.

I'm currently working on the lace bookmark in some cotton Rowan yarn in a beautiful sage green. I'm glad that the bookmarks are small because I remembered that I really don't like knitting with cotton and I had forgotten how to knit lace. I kept knitting the yarn overs wrong on the purl side. It's nice to have figured this out on a small project.
