The Littlest Christmas Tree

This month has been a whirlwind of activity on the life and work front, and the same is true in knitting world as well.

The fast and easy Kintra and Wyndfael Mitts patterns were released earlier this month, and there's another Tikkyn afghan on the needles, which has become my pick-up-lay-down project while I work on a few last-minute Christmas knits.

Among them is a growing stack of XS/extra small Christmas Trees worked in varied yarn weights and needle sizes. Some will be gifts (or gift tags), while others will simply become part of our growing collection of holiday decorations. 

Made with leftovers lurking in the stash, they've turned into a great way to put scraps, leftovers and partial skeins to good use. The weather has been so grey and overcast, it's been difficult to get decent photos, so bear with me. 

Here's the line up as it stands right now.
Left to right:
Yarn Weight: Sock/Fingering  |  Sport  |  DK  |  Worsted  |  Bulky 
Dimensions:  3 x 3 to 7 x 7 ins

This assortment was soon joined by a tiny, shiny sibling, the littlest Christmas tree of all:

Yarn Weight: Lace with sparkly carryalong 
Dimensions:  2 x 2 ins

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah! May you and yours have the happiest of holidays, however you choose to celebrate.
