Tis the season to be….knitting?

I found a great pattern for the holidays. Quick knit cabled Christmas trees! I love them. The base of the tree is a wine cork (another reason to love them). So in the spirit of the season I think it’s time to pour a glass of wine and knit a tree.

Topsy-Turvy Crazy

I’ve gone Topsy-Turvy crazy. I love these toys. I found the book hidden in the back of a yarn shop, on the bottom shelf pushed to the back. Obviously, after such hard work just to find it, it was meant for me. I realize I no longer have babies or toddlers, but I do get visitors and I am determined to have a basket of these toys sitting by my fireplace. Topsy-Turvy Inside-Out Knit Toys is amazing. The detail that Susan B. Anderson goes into is awesome. Her directions are specific and in the end they are so creatively simple I wish I had thought of them myself. I love her designs and she always goes the extra mile to make things perfect. These were so much fun to make. For now, I have a snowman/Christmas Tree, pigs-in-a-blanket, penguin/egg (or snowball, which everyone prefers to say) and on the needles the hen/fox. I love, love, love these!
