Knitted Ornaments

Are you getting ready for Christmas? I have been working knitted ornaments. They make great simple gifts (or last minute gifts!) and are fun and easy to whip up.
My favorite so far is this Knitted Stjarna by Karolina Eckerdal. I love the ingenious construction and it's simple beauty. 

This Two Strands Christmas Ball by Mary Ann Stephens is also on my list. A lovely classic colorwork design.

 And to add a bit of color I am having fun crocheting these Christmas Baubles by Carmen Heffernan  in fun colors. These are really fast to make! Taking about half an hour to complete. 

What about you? Do you have Christmas projects that you are hard at work on?

    1. Thank you Summer! They are fun to knit too! Do you knit?

  2. 'Whip up' made me laugh. I'm sure i would have needed to start these cute ornaments in June. Lol. My projects are getting two trees decorated and watching movies. :-))

  3. I have made over 300 little tree ornaments; the pattern for these sewn trees is a free on Joann's fabric store site. I did the sewing all on my 1960's Singer sewing machine. I've been getting some really positive feedback on them; however, I wish I had learned to knit, because your ornaments are adorable!! Torry
