More Christmas

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately — the combination of lots of end-of-term socialising and monotonous stocking-knitting has left me with little to say and little time to say it. But I thought I’d show you the mini-sweater ornament I’ve made as a hostess gift for a Christmas party I’m going to this afternoon. Here it is blocking (which totally amuses me — but the bottom was curling up, so I needed to!) on the arm of my couch:

I used some leftover sock yarn; I wish I had leftovers of the self-patterning yarn, since I think that would make a very cute sweater. I’m not particularly dexterous with the thin yarn and tiny objects, though, so it was a bit of a pain to do. Still, it was quick, and I like the result.

I’m hoping to have some pre-felting pictures of the completed stockings in a few days — I’m starting the last one today. Getting there…

Awwwww! So cute. I have lots of leftover sock yarn set aside for sweater ornaments — thanks for reminding me how sweet they are.

What a cute little sweater! I just finished a sock that would make a fab ornament…thanks for the inspiration!
