I have another really cute book to review.
This is Deck the Halls: 20+ Knitted Christmas Ornaments and it is from Annie’s Knitting. The link takes you to Annie’s website, where you can order this great little book in either hardcopy or electronic download, for the very reasonable price of $9.99 for each format.
As you no doubt have figured out from the title, this is a collection of Christmas Ornaments that you can knit, and they vary from easy to intermediate.
I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites to show here because they are all so darned cute! But here goes:
I love, love, love this wee reindeer!
And the elf is also too cute for words.
The little snowflake is a great way to practice stranded colorwork without the commitment of a big project.
A little sheep! The body is knit with a textured bulky yarn so it is easier than it looks. I think you could use a worsted yarn held with a strand of laceweight mohair to achieve a similar result.
How could i not include the wee socks among my favorite? You can really go wild with creativity on these with just tiny bits of yarn.
And the same goes for the mittens.
And the tiny sweaters too!
A lot of these ornaments would be great as embellishments on special gifts or as a holiday pin for your coat.
If you got started now, you could whip out a lot of adorable little embellishments by thew time the holidays roll around.
And to help, I’ll offer up my review copy, even though I selfishly want to keep it!
To be entered in the drawing to win my review copy of Deck the Halls: 20+ Knitted Christmas Ornaments leave a comment on this blog post by 11:00 am Eastern Time on Sunday, August 9, 2015. I’ll choose a recipient at random them.
August is the last month of Camp Loopy 2015, and here is my progress on my Camp Loopy project:
This is Martina Behm’s Match & Move and I am knitting mine from Wollmeise Pure in the Sabrina and Tambopata colorways. This combo makes for nice subtle stripes.
I’m just a bit over one-third done at this point.
Loki wants you to know how tiring it is being beautiful and spoiled all the time.
