Sparkly and Fuzzy

Filed under: Crafts — Catherine @ 10:00 am

After finishing knitting my shawl (hm, I guess it’s still waiting for me to block it), I jumped in to my holiday crafting.

I try to craft little things for close family and friends each year. Last year I didn’t do anything (that whole buying and moving in to a house thing) but year before I made really cute Korknisse and the year before that I crocheted snowflakes.

This year it’s all about ornament covers!

This is a great way to use up all my yarn leftovers! I bought some plastic unbreakable ornaments from Ikea (silver-colored) and grabbed some Red Heart Holiday yarn from my stash. The above ornament I gave to my mom but I had a sudden idea to use up some other yarn I had in my stash for my sister’s ornament…

Fun Fur! Yeah, don’t be shy, you know you have some fun fur in your stash! My friends laughed when they saw what I was knitting and I wasn’t sure it would come out as I hoped but in the end I think it was a success!

So far I have only knit 2 red ornaments and 1 fuzzy ornament… I better get moving. I might embellish with some ribbons or bells if I get a chance.

Are you doing any holiday crafting? Please share!
