I like to add some new Christmas ornaments to our collection each year. I had been doing that for years. But, with my frequent international moves, it hasn’t make sense to hang onto Christmas ornaments other than the best and real keepsakes. Last move, I gave a couple of sets away. So, the reality is that this year, I have very few Christmas ornaments in my collection. Something needs to be done: knitting!!! So you can imagine that my eyes lit up when I spotted these Christmas ornaments knitting pattern sets.
Christmas Ornaments Knitting Pattern Set of Character Balls
First up: there is this fun set of knitted handmade Christmas ball ornaments that are really set of Christmas characters. There’s Santa himself, a penguin, an elf, a polar bear, and Rudolf the reindeer. Not counting the hang tags, each character is about 3-4 “ tall. That’s a nice size. Not too large but not so tiny that you’ll hands will hurt from knitting these. They are fun, small projects to take along on vacation, in the train to work or whatever. The fact that they have faces make them kind of personal. Personalities.

Pink and Purple Christmas Ornaments Knitting Pattern Set
This second Christmas ornaments knitting pattern set is really a collection of patterns that I grouped together. I posted a few years back. Do you remember? At that time, my color choice was rather avant-garde. Or ‘off’ – depends how you look at it. Right now the shops are full of pink and purple Christmas ornaments. But that may not be the case in a year or so from now…. ;-) Just change the color to yellow or so, and you’re good to go. It does not matter, as long as they are all compatible.
