I fell in love with this idea as a gift for fellow crafters.  The blue and silver one is for my fiance's mother.  I never know what to give her for Chanukah; there are only so many knitting pattern books you can give before you feel cheesy, you know?

The "knitting needles" are wooden chopsticks with wooden pegs glued to the ends.


This one is for my best friend who loves purple.  "Then why did you do it in blue?" you might be saying....well, it really is super PURLE!  I swear!

Is the yarn usable, or is the whole thing just meant to be a decorative wreath?  Just curious.

They look great, by the way!

Thanks for all the C&C!

In answer to your question, froggie...No, it's not usable.  I wrapped yarn around styrofoam balls and hot glued all the balls and ornaments to a wreath frame.  That way, I used less yarn.

These are wonderful!!  It's a great idea and they turned out really nicely.
Thanks for the tips on how you made them - I think this might be the perfect thing for a friend's xmas gift - (who has already received knitting books, needles and accessories from me in the past  Roll Eyes)
