With all of my “must make” holiday gifts finished, I’m now free to turn to the fun stuff!
You may have seen my previous posts about the great swaps I’ve had on the A Swap A Month group on Ravelry. Sadly, the group began unraveling a few months ago when it was discovered that the moderator was a naughty swapper herself. Some of the members have reformed into the Strangers in Good Company group. Our first swap is an ornament and card swap for Christmas, so I’ve been scouring the web for awesome ornament patterns.
I found this adorable sweater ornament pattern by Jessica Spencer and had so much fun making these that I think I will create an ornament gift tag for each of the Christmas celebrators on my gift list. (I mentioned before that my winter holiday gift list includes people who observe a range of holidays.)
I made a camouflage version and a cherry chocolate version. These is also a wonderful way to use up little yarn scraps. And, unlike when making a real sweater, I don’t really mind that the sleeves are not the same length for both arms.
