View Full Version : Christmas knitting FO's

Here's a Cabled Christmas Stocking (http://pickinandthrowin.blogspot.com/2006/09/cabled-christmas-stocking.html), and a star ornament.
The stocking I did double stranded with Caron Simply Soft, on size 13 needles. It turned out really loosely knitted, so if I make this again, I'd either triple strand it, or use the bulky yarn called for in the pattern!

I found the pattern for the star ornament here. (http://tiajudy.com/SnowStar.htm) But instead of binding off the last round, I simply put the live stitches onto 20 gauge wire, and then wrapped the frame with ribbon. It looks completely different from the orginal pattern, but turned out pretty, in my opinion.

I'm planning on making lots more christmas ornaments, so with me luck!
