First Ornie for June and Knitting

Howdy folks, here's a little update on a chilly Sunday afternoon. The first of my Christmas ornaments for this month is Holly Noel by Mill Hill.

This was a quick stitch, or should I say bead as obviously it mostly beaded :) I've had a few of these little Mill Hill kits in my stash for several years now so I'm going to try and get a few more done over the next few months.

With the chilly weather we've been having there's nothing better than sitting down by the fire at night, once Hannah is tucked up in bed, with a nice hot coffee, my knitting and some of my favourite tv shows on. At the moment I'm making another cowl, this one is intended for a friend.


Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Such a cute ornament. I will definately have to get into the ornament fad - what a lovely way to fill up tree brances. Such pretty yarn you are knitting with too.

I love your beaded ornament! I have a couple of similar Mill Hill kits in my stash - I forgot how pretty these one when done! Nice start on your new knitting project too.
