While I was rummaging through some of the girls old pencils that I’ve held onto (just in case) I happened up this…
I don’t remember them having one, but they must have.
I’ve never really liked French knitting. It’s fun, but what the heck do you do with all those knitted worms? Any sensible suggestions would still be most welcome.
I put the knitting dolly back in the bag of pencils, but my subconscious clearly didn’t forget about it, because when I thought about making some Christmas cards, I realised worms knitted from scraps of yarn can make Christmas wreaths and candy canes.
Once the knitting and stitching was finished, I rummaged in my box of ribbons salvaged from Christmas crackers.
I also dug out a couple more ribbons salvaged from elsewhere, but I can’t remember where..
Tied them in bows…
I printed Merry Christmas’s on some cream paper…
… cut them out and stuck them, along with the candy canes and wreaths, to card blanks.
I even personalised some.
