My collection of knitted balls has been growing steadily for some time now. Last weekend I finally found some time to stuff and sew up the eights knitted "skins" that had been kicking around in my knitting bag.
Here are the next eight knitted balls :)
And featured individually...
Really enjoyed knitthing this pattern. Crowns are such a trendy design these days. I'm thinking of glueing some white and red rhinestones on this crown. Nothing like crown jewels, eh? :)
Lily de fleur - a well-know French motif from textiles and wall papers. Apparently it symbolizes the Holy Trinity - perhaps I should check that. This design is joined and arranged interchangeably - pointing upwards and downwards.
("Butterfly" 38/55)Butterfly symbolizes rebirth so it's a nice motif to have on the xmas tree.
("Greek Cross" 40/55)This motif reminds me of the Greek Orthodox churches. Fun to knit and it looks great when the red dominates.
("Crown and Heart" 41/55)
Really looked forward to knitting this design - love the crown and love the heart - a perfect match!
With the 42nd knitted ball from the book, I have finally reached the chapter with the animal imagery - something I've been looking forward a lot for months! These motifs are such fun to knit!
("Bird on a Branch" 42/55)This design with the bird sitting on the branch is a two-sided one and is repeated twice on a ball as opposed to the one-sided designs repeated 4 times. This layout takes a little more time to knit but the final effect with a large motif spread over two walls makes it up to you.
("Christmas Pig" 43/55)Festive pig - quite cute with this heart in the middle, isn't it? :)
And a group photo to finish it off.
Currently, the 44th ball on my needles. 11 to go till the end of the project! :)
