I know, I know, it's not even Halloween yet but I can hear sleigh bells in my head already. Ever since I began knitting, I've always liked to give something hand knit as Christmas presents. I have given hats and scarves to nieces and nephews, but my favorite thing to give away is hand knitted Christmas ornaments. I've done mini knitting baskets with teeny tiny skeins of yarn in them and toothpicks as knitting needles. I've also done clear glass round ornaments filled with mini hanks of yarn. I like to use scrap leftovers from my expensive hand dyed sock yarns for these. I think my favorite ornaments though are mini sweaters and mini mittens. They are just so adorable hanging on a tree or a mantle garland. These would be great to add to a plain wreath also.
Look for some gift giving mini's in my SHOP soon!
