    The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it.
    -Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Holiday ornaments from Handknit Holidays. Simple. Balls. Of leftover yarn scraps. Tiny. Insignificant pieces of yarn. Knit. Striped. Wool. Silk. Even chenille. Decorated with my (incredibly rudimentary) embroidery. Incredibly addictive. Can't. Type. Must. Go. Make. More.

    Those are totally fun. I had this idea that you could knit a little ball with the yarn leftover from a sweater, stuff it with cedar balls or the like, and have matching moth repellent for your sweaters. There are a lot of things you can do with knitted spheres!

    They are adorable. You're fulfilling one of your resolutions. They make great gifts. I guess you should knit more even though you're just delaying doing the other stuff. But, we all do that ;-)

    Theresa, Filled with catnip, they could be a great gift for all your cat friends--but then you would have to watch them be torn apart. Love, Aunt Carol
