Hand Knit Ornaments

 I said I would show you some non-glass ornaments, so here are just three.

My dear friend, Paula, is a knitter extraordinaire.She makes the most intricately patterned exquisite sweaters, gloves and hats. Over the years I was thrilled to be the recipient of three knitted ornaments  for my Santa tree.

They are each about four inches tall.

                        This one has a felted face and beard with a knitted hat. So cute!

                                           This one is all knitted. Note the curly beard.

How about these Santa's long johns with the tiniest buttons down the front? It even has a drop seat in the back with two more buttons.

A few years ago she made a series of adorable animal dolls. She brought them to my house for Show and Tell at a FiberWorks meeting. As I oohed and ahed about this bunny/girl, she insisted that i take it. She happily resides on some throw pillows on a chair in my bedroom. Everything is knitted in, including the skirt and Mary Janes. She even has different striped undies and a tail in the back

I cannot knit or crochet so I am always impressed with other people's talents. Paula is very talented in other areas and has tried so many different arts and crafts. She is currently engaged in making collages. Of course they are also fabulous

Come back for some more non-glass ornaments. 

I'm linking up with Off The Wall Friday.

Thank you for sharing Paula's knitted creations. Not only is she a talented knitter, but she has a great sense of whimsy. I love the idea of drop seat on the back of Santa's longjohns.

Ohhh those are cute! I love that "makers" attract "makers". I really think that we truly can appreciate our friends' gifts!
