One of my biggest markers of summer is being at a week-long summer camp I do with my church. I loved it as a camper, and now that I’m older, I love it as a counselor! I had the opportunity to talk to one of my past campers today, and I knew that I wanted to make her something special.
- 1/10 skein of Premier Yarns Cotton Fair – a fine weight (2) yarn (above colour: Baby Blue)
- 2.00mm hook
For the record I am using Pattern #2! It took me a few seconds to understand the pattern written out, which is a reason why I am eternally grateful for stitch diagrams! I was using a bigger hook and yarn weight than recommended, so I decided to compensate by making the short arms three shells, and the longer arm five shells so that the bookmark didn’t end up oversized. I also simplified the edging, by doing four single crochets in each chain-four gap rather than any of the more detailed patterns she had written out.
All in all, I was happy with the way that this project turned out and I hope that my friend likes it. I am so so proud of her for taking new steps in her faith so I wanted her to have some sort of a gift to remind her of how far she’s come and how far God can take her and use her.
Did you ever have someone mentor you? Have you ever mentored someone else? I find that even in our crafting community, mentorship is so important! I love learning from others, and I hope that someday someone can learn something from this blog as well!
Until next time, happy crafting!
