One lone ornament

Myr decided to make a half dozen knitted ornaments… or possibly knitted covers for ornaments, to be precise. After casting on for three different ornaments from online patterns, none of which were working, she broke out the pencil and paper and designed her own. She enlisted my help since I knit in the round a lot and she rarely or never does. I did the top half of the item and she finished it on the back-and-forth part and sewed the seam.

Life intervened, and we only got this one ornament done… and not until after Christmas. I’ll rate this as a “great first effort.”


Here’s a closer view in a bit better focus.

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride a Yamaha V-Star 1300. I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.

  1. Lovely! You can help me with the Christmas in July program that I’m thinking of presenting. It will be a whole bunch of different hopefully quick ideas for ornaments.

    So don’t pack it away too far.
