Still November, and more to come!

I'm still working on Christmas ornaments. Craft ACT has sold a few and asked me for more.

The red and green one above, on the left, is Noro Silk Garden Lite, which didn't felt as well as I'd hoped. I've since knit another one with a strand of something reliable and I'm hoping that will make a firmer, feltier fabric. The one on the right (another angle shown below) is a combination of Happyspider's Sour Raspberry (I have gotten a lot of mileage out of that delightful skein, and there's still some left) and that raspberry-coloured Cleckheaton Merino Spun again.

Below, on the left, Patons Jet. The one on the right is Araucania Nature Wool (green/blue variegated) and Lincraft Cosy Wool (blue).

And these are in the always wonderful Sean Sheep Armytage.

The silver ribbons are a perfect touch. Is the silver decoration glued on or did you sew them?

They are gorgeous, so perfect for a knitter's tree.

Is the ball pattern one you are willing to share? I've been wanting to knit my toddler niece a ball toy!

Too cute!

Love all of those, even the ones that may not have felted the way you wanted them to. I agree that Armytage is always reliable. I am hoarding my last couple of balls of the stuff. I wish I had more.

I love them all, but - for some unknown reason - I love the balls in the first two photos the best. I agree that that silver ribbon is a lovely, sparkly touch - Christmassy without being over stated.
