Lace Bookmark Exchange Gallery

The Gallery was for Members of the now-defunct Knitted-Lace List's Bookmark Exchange. I am no longer a member of the list. The photos are from an old exchange.

Please Note! I do NOT have the patterns for these bookmarks. I do not know where to contact the people who made them. Some have, sadly, passed away. This gallery is for your enjoyment, and to give you an idea of taking one to three repeats of a lace knitting, (or crochet), pattern and make a lovely bookmark.

This bookmark is knitted from Finca Presencia No. 12 (a perle cotton) in the Clematis Strip pattern from Mary Walker Phillips' Knitting Counterpanes, one of my favorite lace books. I worked with 00 needles. I like the light delicate look of this lace.
Cherilyn Roosen-Runge
February 1999 The thread is Coats Perle Cotton #10, pale green and the pattern is Lace Leaves from the internet. I haven't got the original source for this, just my printout. I think it is from the K-L List, given when the Bookmark Exchange first started.

It's knitted in size 40 cotton on 1.5mm needles. I used Knitted Lace #7 from Lace from the Attic as a starting point, but changed it from a garter stitch pattern to a stocking stitch one. I also changed it from an edging into a more bookmark-type shape too.
Ruth Matthews
March 1999
The thread is Knit-Cro-Sheen done on size 2 needles. I used the #12 scallop edging from Barbara Abbey's book on page 46, the Diamond Medallion and the foundation lace from Walker in Lace Knitting.
Sally Fuhrmann
March 1999
The pattern is Clover Leaf from Lace in the Attic, page 30. Thread: Embroidery. Needles: 00000. Sally made tow of this pattern, then put the two together with a faggoting stitch. The added touch of a green agate completes this Happy St. Patrick's Day bookmark.

I had spun merino into a 2-ply yarn.I used #2 needles. The center pattern is Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer's own from her Cascading Hearts Shawl pattern. (The bookmark was for Jackie.) The edging is from the Hewitt and Daley book, Classic Cotton Knitted Edgings, Pattern #22. This edging is knitted longways. The heart danglie is a pattern available online from Knitted Threads by Janet Rehfeldt. I added a simple crochet edge to the heart. I over-did the bottom when impaling on the board.
Jeanne McCanless
May 1999
This is from a book from 1932 of edgings that was my Mother's. It didn't have a name, just #8898. She used Cebelia thread #30 on 000 needles.
Katherine Matthews
May 1999
Coats Opera 10, the needles may of been 2mm. The pattern is Old Shale. Katherine used Jan Eaton's Country Crochet and Knitted Lace book.
Ruth Matthews
April 1999
It is made with Knit-Cro-Sheen on size 2 bamboo needles. I used the Frost Flowers (also called Spanish Lace and other names), pattern from The Harmony Guide 440 More Knitting Stitches and edging pattern #149 from classic Knitted Cotton Edgings that Margaret Lambe sent me. Most Frost Flowers patterns are over 34 stitches plus 2 which allows the lace and stockinette stitches to balance out. Harmony's repeat is 18 stitches (I added 1 stitch on each edge and slip-stitched over that to create a straight edge) so the pattern is sort-of an hourglass shape as it doesn't have side by side repeats to balance the shape. I blocked it straight but it wants to revert to the natural shape, so the sides are a bit wavy.

Made for Nanacy McGarvey. 35/2 half-bleached linen, size 00 needles. Blocked size: 2x8 3/4 inches. Linen makes such a nice crisp lace. This thread is from C.L. Blomqvist in Sweden. The pattern is simply the beginning and end sections of the chart from the Heartstrings Hanging Vines Stole Pattern (i.e. the first and last stitches outside the whole repeat.) I thought it was interesting how taking just a portion of the pattern produced yet another. By using the edge portions of the chart, I didn't have to do anything additional for an attractive edge on the bookmark. For blocking, I decided to press the wetted bookmark with a hot iron. Pressing is how I remember my Grandma and Mommy dressing the laces used for tablecloths, pillow edgings, etc. I seem to recall that this is recommended to bring up that nice sheen on the linen. But you certainly have to watch that you don't scorch your fingers while positioning those scallops!

March 1999
Made for Janet Lynn. 2-ply handspun from hand-painted cotton and silk roving, Starview Farm, Edgefield SC. #0 needles. Blocked size: 3x9 1/2 inches. The pattern is featured by Laurie Longinotti on her web page. It is #59 from the Florence Knitting Silk book, printed by the Nonotuck Silk Co., Florence Mass., 1886. The color and varigation of the thread distracts somewhat from the knitted lace pattern. In a light-colored single color, the texture of the leaf shapes would show up more. But overall, I think the mixture of colors lends a nice natural look to the leafy theme. This is more of a slub yarn than I would normally spin. It was one of those rovings that I just could not geet to draft smoothly, no matter which end I drafted from, or method I used. I've set it aside to try another time when maybe I will enjoy it more, I love the color and effect, though. Maybe it is just meant to be what it is. (grin)

April 1999
I used a very fine singles hemp from the Hempery and size 2/0 needles. The blocked size is 2 1/4 x 8 inches. Hemp is similar to linen in its inelasticity and firmness. As such, it lends a nice bit of natural stiffness to the bookmark without additives like starch. The center panel is Lace Cable in The Art of of Shetland Lace by Sarah Don. For the left-slanting decrease in this pattern, I used a K2tog-B, (knit 2 together through the back-loops), instead of the slip-knit-pass-slipped-stitch-over. I made the border around the center motif, although I'm sure this simple pattern is not new and likely is in pattern books. I was just playing around for something to set of the center panel. It is a simple 4-stitch repeat of: knit 2 tog, yarn over, k2 tog-b. This is done every row. For a chain selvage on the edges of the bookmark, an extra stitch on each edge is slipped at the beginning and knit at the end of every row.
