deers and beads

finished-ornaments-1

To be honest, I was quite annoyed with everything christmast when all the presents were finished, so the whole part where I take pictures of the finished stuff and the wrapped gifts and things are pretty and all that were skipped this time.

So you get those horrible pictures, because I will just forget that I made these things when I am not posting them here. I actually had plans to take some pictures where they are on the tree, but for some reason that didn’t happen either.

But hey, deers!

They’re laser cut out of 4 mm plywood, and I think I made about 8 of each type of ornament – because my parents usually have a really huge tree and that seemed to be the minimum required to make them belong with the rest of the decorations. Just as a general information, I think we hung about 350 ornaments before these new ones were added.

purple. red. hat.

I knit another hat, and it’s actually wearable!

As per the recipient’s request, it is really warm and I am quite happy to have found red yarn to perfectly match their hair.

The two-coloured brioche creates a really thick, squishy fabric and the folded up brim adds an extra layer around the ears. And while the stitches could have been a bit more even, I think it’s not too bad for my second knitting project ever.
