Merry Knitmas Wreath

Merry Knitmas Wreath

Back in business with my laptop that my hubby took with him on his first official work trip. Here's what came off the needles several days ago, along with another holiday items that will be posted in the next day or so:

I dub thee the "Merry Knitmas Wreath." It hangs proudly on my door, despite the fact that I haven't put on the LED lights to go along with it. It's really a simple wreath, meant mostly to display the glitter ball cheer.

The pattern is easier than pie, it's a quickie project, and the covers fits like a glove on the styrofoam balls. My mom's a funny lady. While I was knitting these puppies up (she comes over throughout the weekdays to help out with the twins), she was like..."hey, why didn't you just roll them up into a ball and call it a day?" LOL. "Because, dearest mother,...that wouldn't be knitting, would it?"

Pattern: "Merry Knitmas Wreath" (KUAS original)
Needles: US8 needles
Yarn: Martha Stewart's glitter eyelash yarn in green, silver and red
Other materials: Styrofoam balls, package of 6; Wreath: in white; white/silver battery-operated lights (LED preferred because it lasts longer)

Stay tuned for more holiday knits. In the meantime, make yourself a hot cocoa and knit by the fire (or TV) and take a load off. Or, if you're like me, treat yourself to a holiday flavored coffee if you need the caffeine buzz. It's the holiday season, it's easy to forget to take a moment to chill. Chill, ha ha. It's getting COLD out!

I like them, but just the way they look, I know you said they work up easy, but they are kind of intimidating to me.

But they do look nice.
