    Long, long time ago (35 years ago) I learned how to knit… Since then I haven’t knitted a single thing anymore.
    Now I see these Christmas items I’m willing to pick up the knitting needles 🙂
    But first I have to lay down my crochet hook, hihihi.

    I love the knitted items!

      Long, long time ago (64 years ago) I learnt how to knit. My father taught me when I was 4 years old. Since then I couldn’t even guess how many items I have knitted. I learnt how to crochet almost 50 years ago when I made several items and haven’t picked up a crochet hook since. I keep thinking that I will pick up a crochet hook again soon but first I must put down my knitting needles.:-)

  3. Rita Turner says:

    Love these. I have just started knitting ornaments for the Christmas tree so these will go well

  4. Cynthia says:

    I am sorry there is no yarn package that would apply to your knit along for these cute Christmas items.

  5. Janet says:

    Quick, easy, and fun. I”m making a bunch to give as favors for my group’s luncheon meeting.

    Last year the girls found the raspberry ruffles intended for their advent calendar and I knitted a few toys to fill up the spaces. This year they are hoping for less sweets and more knitted treats! Thanks goodness for these patterns! They are quick easy and most importantly pretty . I’m really enjoying making them. I left the decorations off the tree and put a few buttons and beads in the advent calendar pockets for the children to sew onto the trees. I’m hoping to leave finishing touches on some others. Thanks again for these patterns
