Christmas ornament 1

By spotogspindel | November 6, 2011

I am getting ready for the Christmas ornament exchange, and am trying out different ideas. I am a bit unsure which to choose, so I thought I´d ask your help. Today´s ornament is knitted.

Inspired by this incredibly cute Christmas-tree mitten garland,

I made this mini-mitten. It´s about 3×3 inches (7×7 cm). The yarn is a bit thick and chunky for trying to make anything miniature, but I do like the candy-colors 🙂

I added a printed heart to the front of the mitten. I don´t normally use a lot of hearts, but Christmas is the joyful season, so why not?

So this is number 1 in the different options. I´ll post some others during the week to come.

    Well so far I like this one the best 🙂 Intersting the yarn is chunky but adds that resonance of old world charm I think. We are so use to seeing fine threads like polyester that’s a good to see something that glows with the touch of a human hand

    Christmas ??- aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh

    looking forward to the next choices!
