Decorate for the holidays with yarn!
At the Stitches show in October, we decided to pull out a bunch of holiday ornaments and show them on a tree. I had a ball of red Spark-a-Doodle and decided to make a garland. Before I started, I had no idea how it would look or exactly how I was going to do it. I wrapped round and round starting at the bottom. When I got to the top, I had a good bit leftover so I thought I’d use the leftover yarn ball as a giant pom-pom to top the tree. I simply inserted the remaining ball into a branch and Voila! The result was better than I ever imagined. Here are a few other yarn and holiday ornaments that you could use in your own 2011 decorating.
