Nordic Julekuler: 22, 23, 24, 25/55

Hi all. Hope you had a good sunny weekend :) We had been lazing around for 2 days and shopping for a new dishwasher! :) Meanwhile, I keep crafting away, as I always do and here is another batch of my Norwegian-style balls :)
I really loved knitting these motifs. The christmas tree pattern is a must-knit in this collection! First I knitted one with a metallic Anchor yarn, just as in the book.

 ("Christmas Tree" 22/55)

Then I knitted a white-n-red version and glued some green gems onto it.

 ("Christmas Tree" 22/55)

Then a white-n-grey version popped out, embellished with silver rhinestones. 

                                                                                             ("Christmas Tree" 22/55)

All three...


                                                                                                 ("Christmas Tree" 22/55)

If you ever wondered about the size of these julekuler - These balls are pretty big! One takes the whole palm! I knit mine with 3mm double pointed needles.


Then another patterns followed:

("Christmas Bells" 24/55)

 
("Christmas Bells" 24/55)

 ("Falling Star" 25/55)

 ("Falling Star" 25/55)

 ("Falling Star" 25/55)

And all together :)

 Total number of knitted patterns: 25/55
