Words from the Knot House

Welcome back to the Wednesday Weekly Challenge. Each Wednesday we will be posting a link to a free pattern and challenging you, the reader, to try it. In addition to the pattern link, we will post a picture of how our tatting turned out when we followed the pattern. Following the challenge, we will feature reader completions of past challenges.
Challenge Issued: Follow the linked pattern in any color combinations and thread sizes you choose. [Variations of the pattern are welcome and encouraged.] Then snap a picture and send it to sbspokane@yahoo.com with the subject line “Weekly Challenge” to see your completed work featured as part of next week’s challenge post. Be sure to include the name you wish us to list with your photo – we want to give you credit! [There is no time limit on sending in your picture – feel free to send in any weekly challenge pictures (from last week or weeks/months ago) and we will feature them as part of the next Wednesday’s post.]

Weekly Challenge #39 Flowery Bookmark with Self-Closing Mock Rings by Jane Eborall

I joined a shuttle exchange with one of the Facebook groups I am in and part of the agreement is that we send out a bookmark with each shuttle. I wanted each package to have the same bookmark but each one had to coordinate with the shuttles I decorated. After looking all over, I found myself back in the familiar territory that is Jane Eborall’s blog. Since I have not dome much with SCMR and wanted a challenge I decided on this flowery creation.
I will be upfront with yo’all, the first one was a challenge, mostly my own doing. When I am working a new pattern, I find myself trying to anticipate the next stitches anyhow everything is going to work out. This is probably because I rarely follow a pattern 100%’ I always want my own spin on what I am making. I suggest with this pattern, just trust in Jane and her tatty wisdom and it will all work out. Don’t let your brain make it hard than it has to be.
Notice in my picture, none of my bookmarks have tails. I will be adding my special touch instead once they are all done.
Enjoy and read on.

    Jane’s flowery SCMR book mark is one of my favorites, and one that I revisit every so often. It looks particularly stunning in HDT, paired with a solid green, as you have shown it, but a bright solid such as fuchsia looks lovely as well. Having sent one overseas as a Birthday gift (and then forgotten all about it), I was gobsmacked when I visited a couple of years later to find the bookmark prominently displayed on a lampshade in the living room. (They loved it that much!)
