Hi all :)
Another Norwegian-style woolly ball has recently enlarged my collection of Arne & Carlos' Julekuler - "Dovre" - finished and stuffed last Sunday afternoon. Apparently it's a pattern seen on children's mittens across the cultures.
Easy and pretty fast to knit although it involves frequent switching between the colours which is tricky :) I'm happier now as my woolly balls are more spherical than the 1st ones I made since I started to be more careful with stuffing them. A decent amount of springy polyester and neat careful arrangement inside the ball is the key to a correct shape. Getting there!
I've also tried a bit of yarn bombing using a rose bush in the garden :) It served as a mock-Christmas tree. Can't really wait till I see my julekuler hanging on a real festive Christmas tree.
And here is what they look like together, finished and ready :)
More Norwegian balls to come soon!
Time to check what other crafters have been up to this week at Hand-made Monday blog. Do join in this fun!
