I thought I had published this FO report, but it turns out that WordPress ate it or something. So I’m publishing on their 11-month anniversary! Bon Anniversaire, ornaments!
Sweater Ornaments, started December 21st, 2007, finished December 27th, 2007
Pattern: Rough guideline to Sweater Ornaments from brooklyntweed.
Yarn: I think it was Bernat Satin Sport. It’s not bad in terms of sheen, but it is acrylic so it isn’t as flexible as a natural fibre.
Needles: 5mm circs
Modifications: I adapted the recipe for knitting flat because when I decided to start them I only had bigger circs on hand.
Would I knit it again? Yessirree! These are great gifts. I gave these to my aunt and uncle, whose initials are R and C, hence the letters. I also made a pair for my other aunt and uncle, but I forgot to take pictures before gifting them. I knit the base colour first, and then either duplicate-stitched the letters or embroidered them. It was really fun!
I got the hangers at Michael’s. They’re for doll clothes. Idunno about you, but when I had dolls (only one or two, but I still had ‘em), I kept the clothes rolled up in a ball. Once a clothes-baller, always a clothes-baller. These were about a dollar each.
