A bookmark to be proud of

I take it back. Definitely do bookmarks. They sure are pretty when you 1) use correct needles (bamboo or something that doesn't cause slippage) and 2) use something other than white crochet cotten.

Here's my rococo bookmark in gold lame thread. Tada! This thread is a cotton crochet thread w/ gold wrapped around it.

I do notice that using 1's instead of 2's is much better, and I may have to even look for 00's to make this look even better.

I'm now ofcourse looking to do more lace. BTW--this is the same pattern as the white crochet thread. True, this one is blocked, but I really think that this thread is a little stiffer and works up much better.
