Autumn is here and my thoughts have turned to Christmas, and what I can make for friends and family this year. Last year I experimented with some Korknisse – cork elves – and this year I wanted to improve on my design and make them into Xmas tree decorations.
So I bought some red and green yarn, and found tiny bells and googly eyes on the internet. I already had gold thread in my stash to make the hanging loop with – I think this might have been from Granny Sarah’s stash as it is a very old bobbin.
Today, as I was coding data for my PhD, I made my first one – now all I need to do is glue the hat and sweater on and it will be finished.
