Trois Fleurs Lace Bookmark

I finally got down to typing up the chart I made for the new bookmark.  It has three lace flowers surrounded by eyelets around the edges.  The fun bead I picked for the tassel echoes the flower shape of the lace.  I found out that the Windows version of CET Knitting Symbols font works almost perfectly with Apple's Pages.  Almost.  I just could not get any of the alt-codes to work, so had to improvise a "t" for the more commonly used knitting symbol for a twisted stitch.  You can find the finished charted pattern here.

I love the part where I get out the pencil and graph paper and draw the design.

The finished bookmark looks great with this color-way of Mini Mochi yarn.  Blocking:

Fueled by homemade turkey pot pie, I was able to get through the frustration of (still) learning Apple's Pages version of working with tables as opposed to Word.  The pot pie is to die for.  I'll share my recipe next blog.

LOVE THE NEW BOOK MARK. GLAD TO HEAR YOU HAD A NICE TURKEY DAY. COOKING HERE IS A BIT DIFFERENT. SOME THINGS COOK MUCH LONGER WHILE OTHERS BURN REALLY QUICK
