Time to show off some of my personal knitting this time. I'm not one for colourwork really, but the pattern for these knitted tree decorations really took my fancy so I decided to do 3 as part of my mum's Christmas present. After all, she still has one of the first tree decorations I ever made, so why not add my first ever colourwork to that?!
The pattern is originally from a book called 55 Christmas Balls to Knit, but I saw it in the December edition of a magazine called The Knitter. My first two balls were the pattern included in the magazine:
For the third, however, I decided that rather than duplicate one of the two above I would have a go at designing a snowflake:
Fortunately they came out ok, and I have to say I'm quite pleased at my first attempt at colourwork. You never know, I might do some more at some point...
