PICTURES

I've been working on samples for a 'Christmas ornaments' class I'll be teaching at the store... one of these is easy for beginner knitters (the gift), one for intermediate knitters (the mitered square) and one for intermediate/advanced (the sock!) ... I'm still looking for a few other simple ideas for knitted Christmas ornaments -- any suggestions?



And here's the cables-and-lace scarf I've started that I promised a pic of:


It's much prettier red than the picture shows, but it's an easy knit. :-)

I used to make Christmas ornaments by felting fleece balls. I'd wrap fleece one way and then perpendicular, then put it in the toe of a pair of pantihose or knee high, knot it and then add another. Throw it in the washing machine and the dryer and you get a very cool felt ball. Keep in mind that felt shrinks so you have to make the fleece ball bigger.

What about little Christmas trees? You could do a longish triangle with a little square for the trunk. Or maybe something with I-cord tied into a circle like a wreath?
