I think I'm good with this style/pattern. Last night I worked it at Sally's house and it had been exactly a week since I last worked with bobbin lace. I didn't have any problem at all. I refreshed my memory a few times starting and I had to back out of a few stitches that I got off track on by talking at the same time, but it went well.

I think the next one is about the same but with diamonds. There are only 2 more in this bookmark series. The book has other projects, larger and in fine yarn but I'm not interested in doing those yet.

After the bookmarks, I will follow some lessons posted online that have to do with various grounds, starting points, footsides - details, in other words. I want to work on those now before I get into a different project although there is a heart I might do. I also didn't see a fan bookmark in this series and I want to practice that so I can do the one I had a class on properly.

I'm out of town today but mostly riding in a car with a couple of other employees. Too bad I can't lace on the way. I've tried tatting, but there is a lot of conversation and I don't generally get much done.

I've had the bobbin lace bug lately myself. I just haven't done anything about it!

Your bookmark is lovely!

I try to tat in the car, but sometimes the road's too bumpy. It certainly couldn't be me! ; )
