Inspired by these cute little trees I made my own for the library.
These were my second and third attempts. Trust me, attempt number one was not a pretty sight. I think they look sweet using the old spools of thread as bases.
And then last night I got it into my head that I needed to knit a mini sweater ornament. I used this pattern.
My first attempt was a disaster. Why can't I ever ever ever ever get anything right the first time??? he he he I blame the fact that I didn't exactly READ the pattern, I assumed what it was going to say and off I went.
I quickly cast-on sweater number two. It took me much longer to knit because I was actually READING the pattern very carefully as I went along. The snowflake on the front is from my scrapbooking stash (yes, I have one of those too!) and the drapery hook was part of an AMAZING package sent to me from Felicia. (Thanks AGAIN Felicia!!!)
Just to prove that sweater 1 & 2 are not the same:
And as if I don't have anything else to do (ya right!). I cast-on a mini hat ornament this morning to match the sweater. I'm crazy.
