I am back at the christmas ornaments, and having a great time with them. First up, one I did for Bug for a stocking stuffer. She’s been begging for this one, and I didn’t really want to make it. But, since it’s her year of handknits, I figured it’s only appropriate she get it in her stocking.
This is a new color combo, it’s navy and grey. I like it, and hope for more of this combo, perhaps more navy with a grey design.
And, next up, one I’ve been thinking about making for years. To my knowledge, this is the only 3 color Christmas ornament in the entire book. I decided to use the yarn leftover from my color affection shawl, so I ended up with a lovely jewel toned ornament. I had to hold the yarn double for this, which was complicated and very tight stitches, but I think the end result is quite beautiful.
Though I can see it needs some additional squishing to get it more round.
I am again out of stuffing, so I am going to need to slow down on the ornaments and do more flick carding.
In the meantime, I am hard at work finishing Bug’s Christmas tunic, and it’s almost there! I am excited to show it off as well, even though I’ll be stuck waiting for a modeled photo until after Christmas.
