Christmas Projects: Knitting And Decor
On this end to the first week of December, I wanted to show you a few things I've been working on.
First, I had a lot of Fraser Fir left from trimming the tree and I wanted to use it in some way. Second, its been windy and I needed to keep these pots on the table to keep the cloth on. I started laying on the greens and then decided to try to stick them into the pots too! Kind of crazy, but I like it. I'm going to add a string of lights here and call it done for the winter! I'm enjoying being able to see this outside on the deck!
The other project I'm doing is knitting up some cowls to put in Christmas stockings. I found this lovely velvet yarn at Hobby Lobby and bought it in three colors. Its yummy. The pattern couldn't be more simple - cast on 22 stitches, and knit every row until it is as long as you want it! (the needles are size 17us)
This color is a teal and I took both of these photos this morning, the first in the living room, and the second in the kitchen. The color is somewhere in between these two photos.
On a personal note, I'm hosting my co-op moms tonight for a Christmas gathering. I'm looking forward to sharing some good conversation, good food, and the joy of the season with them!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
