Blue Balls: Christmas Gift-making Craze Revisited

Blue balls for my sweetheart



In December, my sweetheart, hoping that I’d find a good use for it, gave me a favored blue sweater that, sadly, clothes moths had ruined.  What to do, what to do with an old, moth-eaten sweater and a scrap wool stash?  Ah, yes.  Christmas ornaments!  My ornaments are modified versions developed from the tutorials at these two links:  The Purl Bee & My Desert Cottage.  Izzy, the cat was very helpful in the gift-making melee.  She kept track of everything for me: anything I was looking for was under the cat.

    These turned out great! I love the photos. What would we do without our “assistants?”

      I’d never be able to find anything if I didn’t have a cat to look under and I wouldn’t know it was break time if she didn’t try to play with me upon retrieval of said objects.
