Visions of Christmas Decorations Dance in My Head

November 9, 2010 at 10:39 am 1 comment

I’m getting very excited about christmas. I’m making all kinds of plans to make my own ornaments. Of course I wanted to knit some of them. It dawned on me yesterday that tiny knitted apples would be the most cunning little homemade ornament.

I threw together a design and knitted up a sample last night. It turned out about as adorable as I envisioned. It’s about 2.5″ tall, knit on size 0 needles with some left over knit picks kettle dyed stroll in the wine colorway. Unfortunately it’s discontinued. But any fingering weight yarn would work. The leaf is knit picks shadow lace in the forest heather colorway held double. The stem was made of the only brown yarn I had, 100% alpaca DK weight. You could really use any weight for the stem.

I’m hoping to type it up and make it available. We’ll see.
