Nordic Julekuler: "Poinsettia" 19/55

It's been a while since I blogged a post about my finished knitted Christmas balls. Hope you missed it :P Been knitting quite intensely for the past two weeks and a big build-up of half-finished balls has turned up. Spent the whole day steaming and stuffing the balls and here they are! - 16 new knitted balls! Put them in a big glassy vase for a temporary display :)




So, What do you think? :)
I like to feature individual ball patterns on my blog. Today I'll present the pattern no. 19 - Poinsettia - one of my favourite ones. So Nordic, so Scandinavian and captured my heart with its simple form and geometric shapes so that one poinsettia ball has turned into 6 ones!


I wanted to knit a few variants of different colour combinations and so here they are:
I found the blue and white version particularly nice. Even this blue shade of Heilo yarn is called Norwegian blue :)


Shades of grey (Just two this time, not 50! :P) plus some red would look nice on a festive tree too, I think.



Time to join up Hand-made Monday. Heading over to Hand-made Harbour to see some other lovely creations.

  6. Love your decorations, did some similar last year and I appreciate how fiddly it is to work the fair isle pattern into the round

  8. I like these a lot, Christmassy but not over the top. I like the red on a white background as the pattern stands out so well.

  10. I always love your knitted ornaments, and it's hard to believe but Christmas is only 5 months away (if I have counted correctly). OH MY! Those are beautiful, love them in the vase, very nice way to display them.
