aww thats beautiful, I love how certain decorations gain such sentimental value... we have a whole collection of angels that my sister has made over the years for the top of the tree, including faded pre-school paper ones, this year she has apparently made a partridge  Huh

well here is one of the swans...


I found the pattern on the web, it's by Manuel Sirgo.

get well soon stoliedina!!!

also the embroidery is incredible, recipients are very lucky. This thread is so inspiring, thank you everybody!!

I am away from home with limited craft materials but am communicating with my little sister for christmas tree decorations... as the more artistic one she is in charge of the whole shebang but I am currently working on seven-origami-swans-a-swimming for her theme of birds. do decorations count as christmas crafting? I am feeling a little lost without access to a sewing machine, origami is as far as I get at the moment...

That looks SO fun! And it looks cat like to me! Perhaps it's just the gray that suggests a wolf....

And it looks wonderfully warm....she's going to LOVE it!

Thanks! I don't know if she'll ever actually wear it though!

So whats with the trend for hats with ears eh? clearly, here lies the future of beginner knitting/crochet projects...
pops and dannispring240, those hats are too cute Cheesy  as are the photos...

thank you so much for the instructions! I think I understand mostly, it's hard to envisage exactly but it will make sense once I try it with some fabric. As soon as I have access to a sewing machine... I can't wait! Thanks!

Hey! I have been lurking for months on this thread now, meaning to make and post some things but never getting round to it. So having finally finished something for Christmas I am dying to share it, and I know it's not at all to do with this month's theme Sad , but I am so proud of having finished something! I have no patience or sense of planning so it's an achievement for me. This was a request from my little sister, I've recently started knitting and her first request was for a hat with ears. It was meant to be a cat but ended up a little more wolf-like. Now I just have to have the patience to wait til Christmas to give it to her!!!

Ok so now I go picture crazy:


and in action



see the cosy earflaps?


and I put little ceramic fish beads on the dangly things from the earflaps


Sorry for the terrible, myspace-style photos - I'm away from home without a camera Sad Also it's late and I have earache, so not looking my best...

the facts: knitted with Jaeger fur (amazing stuff it was discounted in my local yarn shop Cheesy) with black "fun foam" for inside the ears. No pattern just random trial and error (lots of error in my case). Super super fluffy.

I hope this post is ok, within the thread rules, not too long etc. it's my first so I'm not sure...
Thanks stoliedina for giving me the motivation to do some Christmas crafting, this thread is so inspiring!

It's stunning and it really suits you! what kind of fabric is it? and do you have any advice on how to make a similar one??? (if not a full tutorial!!!) please thankyou I love it and would really like to try making one, it's so beautiful!
I agree lace could work underneath...
