Still Making Christmas Ornaments

I am still in Christmas mode and have been making  Christmas ornaments.  This little crochet stocking is pretty easy to make.  The pattern is over on Angie's (Sucrette) blog.  You can find the pattern, Little Christmas Socks, listed over on her side bar.   I think several of these would be cute all crocheted together in a chain.  This was my first try.  I think I need to move up a needle size on the next one.  The "lumpy row" by the heel is where I crocheted over my threads.  Next time I will take time to sew them in instead.  I also realized that I grabbed the wrong size crochet hook after I was finished.






Last year my daughter and I made these tiny Christmas stocking ornaments from a pattern that she adapted.  She drew up the fair aisle designs.  You can see how small these are compared to my Starbucks mug.



You've seen all of those neat red and white knit Christmas ornaments all over the internet.  This is my first attempt at knitting a Christmas ball.  I love these things, but it has been so long since I've knit anything on double point needles that it just felt awkward.  So I have to practice on this one for awhile.  I'm thinking that maybe I can come up with a pattern that is knit flat and then stitched up afterwards.  I know the time to work on Christmas things (at least for me) is right now while Christmas is still fresh on my mind.  Stay tuned.


 
If you have a pattern or a link for these knit Christmas balls, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
