I appear to be on a bookmark bender these days....

I rediscovered a pattern for granny stitch bookmarks, and, having some brightly colored size five threads and a C hook on hand, I decided to whip up a couple. Here are the first two; I've got more colors stashed away, thanks to a thrift store bargain bag :hook. So many color possibilities...

Very nice! Pretty colors and with tassels too. I always think they look more finished that way.
It's a new one for me too. Thanks for the link!:hook

Honestly, I'm not sure--mostly, I've found this stuff in thrift stores and estate sales.

This is one of my favorite bookmark patterns. Very easy, and can make them any size you want. I use #10 thread too and do one or more extra rows etc.

Very pretty! Someone asked about size 5 thread. I thought I had seen it and maybe bought it at a Walmart near us (we have about 5 within 20 minutes of us). But you can also buy it online from lots of places like Herrschner's or Mary Maxim or out of their catalogs. Do a google search on "crochet thread/size 5".
