Submitted by Pam on Tue, 12/01/2015 - 19:48
Today, December 1st - time to begin the countdown to Christmas!
And I am sharing the last group of ornaments made for the new Silver Dollar Advent Calendar Tree! Just finished under the wire!!
I am sharing in two posts and knowing you are all so busy this time of year, I will keep it short and sweet!!
All three knitted Christmas balls shared here are based on my absolute favorite Knitting Book by Arne and Carlos "Norwegian Knits with a Twist".
The knitted ball designs reflect three sweater patterns in the book; and the designs were created by me using the knitted ball design tool - Julekuler - available on the Schachenmayr site right here!
To be honest, I had not been the least bit interested in knitting a sweater until I saw the sweater patterns in this book!!! The cream and green sweater above is going to be my first and hopefully, if I complete the tree skirt in this book in time, I will make my first sweater this year!!
I chose the pale blue yarn for the ball as it is the color of St. Andrew's Cross.
And this! Don't you love the hearts!!! I believe Arne and Carlos specially designed this heart for the sweater.
This will be my second sweater and then the sweater Arne is wearing at the top of the post.
I can't imagine any serious knitter not owning this book!!! There are patterns for mittens, stockings, hats, pillows, throws, the cutest bear on the planet and of course four gorgeous sweaters. Five if you include the dog sweater!!!
"Norwegian Knits with a Twist" by Arne and Carlos can be ordered right here! It would be a terrific gift for anyone you love who knits!
