Thing a Day 2009 - Day Three: Knitted Bookmark

I was in the mood to knit a bracelet for my project today.  But I couldn't find the stuff I wanted to knit with.  The other project I had in mind was a bookmark but I didn't feel like doing papercrafts tonight.  And I did want to knit.  Hence, knitted bookmark.

Basically find a remnant of yarn (this is leftover from a scarf I knitted last year).  And a pair of needles.  Cast on six stitches and knit until it looks long enough - I held it up against a book a couple of times to check.  Cast off.  I had the two yarn ends tied together and may add a bead for decoration if I have one big enough to go on there.
