December Videp - Lace Oranment Project

Oh, I know y'all are busy in December!  Why, it's nearly madness, the way we run around, and then we wonder why we haven't much holiday spirit left.  My blogging is almost nonexistent lately, with all the appointments and obligations I've had.

Even if you don't have a lot of time, how about treating yourself to a knitting session and making some fun ornaments? 

You can do this on a Brother electronic. Rather than go through all the business of starching the lace ornament and having it hollow, I just covered plain, shiny red balls.  They don't take very long, and I plan to demonstrate this next weekend at the Knit Natters holiday meeting.

This particular lace fascinates me, because it has double-sized holes - they're two stitches wide!  It's very unusual, and it gathers up for an interesting look on top of a Christmas ball.  In the YouTube face photo, I'm sewing the lace ornament cover off to gather the top.


  1. Thanks Diana, for another great video. I
    have not knitted for a quite a while, but will certainly try out your fabulous idea.


  2. Thank you, Diana. It's so pretty! I'm going to have to knit up some of these.

  3. Hello Diana, what a cute and delicate christmas ball! I like this unusual big holes a lot! Thank you so much for your inspiration, I´ll try it out immediately.
    Kind greetings from overseas, hope you can enjoy this years Advent a bit. Gabriele
