Knitted Christmas Ornaments – Most done with handspun yarn
A friend asked if they could be crocheted.  I’m sure they could, as the basic pattern is simply increasing from the bottom, 12 straight rounds for the pattern, and then decreasing rounds to the top.  I’m working on some gold and red and gold and green ones now; the gold is all hand spun.
Our tree is at least 50% hand made ornaments; putting up the tree every year is a trip into Christmas past as we remember the ornaments we made and the ones we received from family and friends.
One year I made paper mache ornaments, some embellished with beach glass.
