So I started knitting an advent calendar. Actually I started it on Saturday but caught up today! Now that I'll be spending a lot of time at home, I think I can totally knit all 24 ornaments by Christmas. It'll help me pass (and mark) the time in December. Then I'll only have another 2 and a half months to go ;0)
The patterns for these teeny ornaments (they are about and inch and a half long) are from another Sirdar booklet designed by Alan Dart. This one is number 298 and simply called "Advent Calendar."
I'm knitting them up from Knit Picks Palette wool with US 0 needles and they are actually knitting up pretty quickly. It's the sewing together of the tiny bits and pieces that is fiddly and time consuming. But they are just so cute that I can't stop knitting them ;0)
Four down, twenty one to go...
