Try This – Spool Knitted Bookmark

Posted by lori . 9 Comments

Special Notice – I’ve heard that beginning March 1, 2012, Google Friend Connect will no longer support blogs that are not published using the Blogger platform.  I use WordPress to publish What Remains Now.  I certainly appreciate how convenient it is to follow blogs using some means of notification.  I use RSS feeds on Google Reader to follow the blogs I love.  So, using the discontinuation of Google Friend Connect  as motivation, I’ve added a few new ways to follow What Remains Now.  On the right-hand sidebar, you’ll notice several different options.  You can follow What Remains Now by subscribing to my RSS feed, on Facebook, on Twitter or on Google+.  I will add the option to sign-up for e-mail updates in the near future.  You can also follow me and all your favorite blogs through Bloglovin’.  Hopefully, these options will make it easy and convenient for you to read What Remains Now.  Please let me know if you have trouble with any of these connection tools.

During the month of February, I’ve been playing around with spool knitting.  Because I didn’t look at a calendar, I thought last Wednesday was the last Wednesday in February.  Imagine my surprise when I discovered 2012 is a Leap Year.  What else to make with my spool knitted tubes?  How about a bookmark.

Knit a tube the length you want for your bookmark.  You may want to measure a book you have on-hand.  I made a tassel for the end, but I think it would look adorable with pom-poms on the ends or a pretty charm.

    WE like the colours. I bet Other Mum will be trying that – she’s going through a crafting phase! Deccy x

  • Is it my imagination that social networks seem to be in some state of flux at the moment? Google, gmail, Facebook, blogger….I can’t keep up. I’m such a dud anyway with tech stuff, it freaks me out. If something should happen when the day comes, I shall find you again 🙂

    Happy leap year! x

  • I love the inspirational quote… Hee Hee.

    Thanks for the heads up about March 1. I’ll have a special eye out tomorrow to see what happens.

    Have a great Leap Day.

    pawhugs, Max

    Okay, it probably wouldn’t surprise you that I love bookmarks too! These are cute. I *really* don’t have time to pick up another hobby…maybe I’ll nudge my SIL about this post and see if she doesn’t want to practice making some of these! 😀

    Love the quote. Bill Cosby did the commencement speech at Univ. of the Arts in Philly when my bro’ was there getting his master’s. He was fabulous!

    Yeah, thanks for the info’ about following…I’m having fun playing around w/ my blog design, but don’t really understand all the options out there for following…

    I’ve never heard of Bloglovin’ before! I use good old Google Reader and that lets me follow whomever I want and as many as I want. I think the whole limiting GFC to Blogger is a sucker punch. I guess we’ll see what happens tomorrow!

    I love the bookmarks! I’m surprised you didn’t make one with a cute little flower at the end!

  • Patty says:

    I really like the bookmark. I LOVE the frog! He is so cute.

    I’m anxious to see what happens tomorrow.

  • Penelope says:

    Cool! And I LOVE the frog!

  • Cute! I’m so upset GFC is going away
