After a short holiday to Scotland…..
and putting Fraser into my shop (see previous blog post)
, I’m getting back to work – the day job and the crafty job both.
Whilst on holiday I made good progress on a design for knitted Christmas trees. I took a mixed bag of yarn with me and came up with a basic pattern and some variations, which work with all sorts of yarn – great for using up oddments in the stash.
All the tree patterns can be knit up in 4ply, DK and aran weight yarn. I had lots of fun decorating the trees when they were finished.
The The contents of my button box and ribbon basket were spread all over the floor, and I’ve included a few ideas in the pattern, which will be availbale from Ravelry later on today.
I’m also going to be selling a yarn pack in my Etsy shop, to make 5 trees in gorgeous British yarn. That is, I am when I get some more yarn in stock. Is anyone else panicking that they have left ordering their Christmas supplies too late already?
