Miniature Ornaments

Posted by 2ton Inspired on December 11, 2007

Each year D and I each get to buy one miniature ornament from Hallmark. This year I decided to make mine. I was going to stop at just this one and make one a year for a set with our last name on it, but D talked me out of it and said, “Who knows what you’ll be into next year and if you’ll have time or be interested. So you should do them all this year.” It makes sense (although I’m doubtful I’ll lose interest in knitting anytime soon) so I’ve plans for making 3 more miniatures.

This stocking was pretty quick (about 2.5 hours). I used the pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts. The only change was the yarn type (leftover scraps from my getting-to-large scrap bag). I forgot how tedious it was to work with small needles. I always have to remind myself to not grip the needles too tightly.

The great thing about doing this pattern was learning how to do the heel. Never having done socks before I think this was a nice way to learn. It wasn’t very involving but it gave enough so I got the gist of it. I just might attempt some children’s socks soon (after I finish all my WIP’s of course!).

It measures about 3 inches tall and 1 inch wide.
