Glitter-ature: A Bookmark

Well, I try to steer clear of naming anything based on the yarn I used so that it doesn't keep people from trying the pattern using a different fiber.  But, I let my husband choose the name for this one...........  :)

Quick and easy bookmark pattern that will work with ay yarn.  Just use whatever size needles are required for the yarn you use and you'll be all set.  You can make this wider and use it as a headband too.  The pattern is in multiples of 7 with 2 edge stitches on each side, so if you increase your number of stitches in increments of 7 you will be fine.

The pattern may also be found on Scribd.com as a PDF and, as always, you can email me at robin@delawareheadhuggers.org and I will email you a copy.

Just got the fantastic news that Schnapps blood work shows NO SIGNS of kidney problems from the Lyme disease!  THANK GOODNESS!!!!!!  He may have hypothyroidism (like I do) but we'll be sure of that next week.  The important thing is that the Lyme was caught early enough and there was no damage to his kidneys!!!!  He knows it's important to exercise, so he was doing yoga with me this morning!

HAPPY KNITTING!
