Winter white yarn wreath

knitted wreath 1

A great project that took only an hour or so – I knit up two skeins of Fleece Artist Slubby Blue (color Natural) on US 15s (held double-stranded), following the free pattern from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas.  Then, I wrapped the wreath form with muslin strips, wrapped the knitted length around the wreath, and used yarn and a darning needle to stitch the lengthwise sides of the knitted piece together at the back of the wreath.  Done!  I liked how the knitted length looked so much that I ordered more of the same yarn to make into scarves.  It would also make a great garland!

I also experimented with different ways to display the handblown glass ornaments that our family made at Elements Glass last holiday season . . . in a silver dish with some greenery looks great, but for the high-ceilinged kitchen, I borrowed an idea from Sunset Magazine, cut a branch and suspended it from the ceiling, and then hung our ornaments from the branch.  I hope I don’t hear a crash in the middle of the night!
