Fall Gifts

I realize that I have too much time on my hands, but they're still pretty. I'm taking them to my family at Thanksgiving. Here's me: "What do you mean we don't exchange gifts at Thanksgiving??".

Basket of Balls

I've been knitting Christmas ornament covers for early gifts for family and Christmas gifts for friends. In the pic there are three of the four lace patterns; the green is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn and the red and cream ones are Brown Sheep Company's Wildfoote. They are really quite a bit easier than I had anticipated - the cagiest part being when you "force" the glass ball into the knitting that is on dpns only a few rows shy of completion. This is the Deck the Halls with Lace pattern. I plan to make a couple more in bright colors for my nieces. I understand that this makes me look a little nutty, but whatever.
