Knitting Christmas balls

This year I have a new obsession: I’m knitting Christmas balls! My husband gave me the book ’55 Christmas Balls to Knit’ by Arne & Carlos for my birthday, and after initial scepticism about the exercise (I mean — knitting Christmas balls??), I have now finished my first ball and totally got the hang of it. So I immediately started the second one, with the eventual aim to knit four balls, one for each of my kids. Maybe I can make them a ball each year, so they can grow a Christmas ornament collection of their own…

I love it! Such a fabulous idea and to make one for each child – such a keep sake. I’m ordering a copy now, thanks for sharing Esther!

very cute! I don’t know if I would have the knitting tenacity to knit a christmas ball. How hard is it?

yay, I made these last year! It was fun, not as hard as it looks. And I love to decorate the tree with handmade ornaments. I like the idea of one for each family member.. guess I have to make some more then ; )
