Felted Wool Christmas Ornaments

These lovely ornaments have just finished drying from the felting process and will be boxed up for my co-worker and friend, Amy.

They are crocheted with lovely red wool with a strand of gold shimmery thread, stuffed with polyfil and felted for a solid closure. They hang with a white satin ribbon.

Amy asked me to make these for her as her very active toddler is getting ready for his first 'I'm mobile now!" Christmas.  With no shattering glass globes or metal hooks to cause him any harm, these ornaments are just the ticket for a safe and happy holiday!

Thanks for asking me to make these for you, Amy!  I had a 'ball'....

Knitted Socks

I just finished this lovely lacy pair of socks in gorgeous teal.  The yarn is hand dyed from The Periwinkle Sheep and is a dream to knit with!  You can check out her other hand dyed yarn here  

Now, off to knit another pair!
