I really love working with crochet cotton.  It hurts my eyes to no end, but I love it!  I made this bookmark for my best friend Jen.  We love to read, and always trade books with each other.  So in honor of our last trip to the book store, I made her this awesome bookmark.  I'm making one for myself too.  The pictures do no do this justice at all.  It's so much nicer in your hand, or in your favorite book! 

This pic is ultra crappy and I apologize, but it does show the tassel.

Wow! That's great! I don't think I have the patience for such detailed work.  Good job Smiley

That is so pretty - I agree on the cotton.  I love it, hate working with it - so I rarely do.
That bookmark is really pretty - makes me want to read a book (man I wish I had more time in the day to actually read a book - I know, they say to read at night before you go to bed but I always fall asleep reading and end up reading the same page over and over and over again!)

Your friend must have loved it - it is so pretty!  You did a bang up job on it!  Awesome!
