    I have the book to knit snowballs. What yarn would you recommend to use from your website ?

      Hi Pascale!

      Personally I love Drops Cotton Merino. Most people I know made these baubles with DK weight yarn, and this particular yarn has a nice selection of shades. It doesn’t pill too much, which is a must for stranded knitting in my opinion, and it has a high twist so you’ll get some really nice stitch definition. Here’s the link:

      Happy knitting!

    Here I was thinking it was just Aussies that did the Christmas in July thing because then we get to experience all of the cold weather Christmas traditions!
