I had to say goodbye to a colleague of mine during the last weeks of school. He used to teach General Sciences together with me, so I had to look for a perfect gift to say goodbye.
I knew he was an avid book reader, and I wanted to reflect the subjects he teaches (General Sciences and Chemistry).
So I went to the thrift shop and found two perfect books! "Gaia" by James Lovelock about the Gaia hypothesis and a biography about Marie Curie, written by her daughter.
And a little crocheted something that reflected myself.
I used this awesome Granny Rectangle pattern written by Sue, I can recommend it!
I used a 2 mm hook and crochet thread, followed the pattern and made a single crochet last round. A smidge of blocking and I had a lovely book mark!
