Hi friends and Happy National Book Lovers Day!!

If you’ve been following along with me on Instagram or if you’re a member of my email list, you may have seen where Ruthie of Teal Dragonfly Creations and I have started a couple of hashtags for those of you who, like us, are equal parts book and yarn enthusiast. If you love books and love working with yarn in any way, then #bookishyarnie and #booklovingyarnie are for you!

GIVEAWAY ALERT!
If you use #bookishyarnie AND #booklovingyarnie on an Instagram post before Aug 14, 2021, you could win a pretty freaking awesome prize package! See what you could win and enter here! But hurry, this is the last week to enter!

In honor of National Book Lover’s Day and our new hashtags, and in addition to the giveaway, I wanted to round up a list of patterns for bookmarks you might enjoy making! Dishcloths aren’t the only great way to practice new stitches! Bookmarks are such quick and gratifying makes and great scrap busters! This round-up has tons of variety! Beginner to intermediate skill levels, free and paid, thread to worsted weight yarn, made for kids or for adults, there’s truly something for everyone! So let’s get to it, shall we?
