I JUST CAN'T HELP MYSELF

I try to keep my knitting out of the weaving blog, but I JUST CAN'T HELP MYSELF.

I found this pattern for Christmas Ornaments on Ravelry, and really its so cute, I just couldn't say no. I made the handles from jewelry wire, and used left over sock yarn, which were my only changes to the pattern. The knitting needles are glass beads on toothpicks as the pattern prescribes, I'm knitting one for each of the ladies at Knit Group, I don't know if I should put brooch pins on the back of them or not so I have not sewn in a cord for hanging them on the tree.

Knitting, weaving - they're both good!!!

Love that project! I was thinking of weaving bookmarks for my knitting group, but these little ornaments would be really cool too. Hmmm....decisions, decisions.

Thanks for posting about it!
