Robins, trees & snowmen – christmas project ideas

As we head into the wintry weather, my thoughts are turning to Christmas knitting, my long-held dream to hand-make all my family’s christmas gifts (it probably won’t be this year) and the hope that I will find a little bit of time this year to make some felt robins for the tree, perhaps with my girls.

Hand-made Christmas tree decorations are lovely to get out of the box each year.  If you fancy having a go at making some, or adding to your collection, please join us on 19th November for a Christmas-themed evening.  Please bring along patterns, projects and ideas.  In Stitches is a friendly group and we are always pleased to welcome new people and those who are learning or refreshing their skills.  On the 19th, we’ll bring patterns, yarn & needles; you are very welcome to come along and have a go.

And just in case you fancy getting started (please bring along your creations to share & inspire)

Jean Greenhowe – wonderful traditional knitted toy & tree decoration patterns from my childhood

Spunknit  -free pattern, cute knitted snowmen

Stjarna – beautiful stars with an interesting cast on (I’ll post a picture when I finished mine). 
This links to a pattern on ravelry.  Ravelry is a free online community for knitters (facebook for knitters) and a wonderful place to find inspiration, ideas on yarns for certain projects, and patterns.  It can also be really helpful to look at the fit of garments before you invest the time in all that knitting.

…and these gorgeous, tiny Christmas stocking by little cotton rabbits  are made with just a few yards of yarn.
