Snowflake Beaded Bookmark Knit Pattern

 

Snowflakeblog

December is Read a New Book Month (and no, I did not make that one up) which is perfect for when the weather is chilly outside and great for staying indoors and for curling up with a good book.  For this reason, I have designed a knitted bookmark which is the third bookmark that’s been featured in this blog.  It makes for a quick project and a thoughtful gift for that beloved bookworm to put to good use.  Its palette is light-colored to mimic the frost that blankets the outdoors during winter.  I chose a snowflake pattern in which there are no two alike in nature representing how unique each and everyone of us are.

Food for Thought Friday

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
