Over the course of 2013, I have been participating in the Merry knitalong over on ravelry. This was the idea of Martine of the imake blog and was based on the book 55 Christmas Balls to Knit by Arne and Carlos. The deal was we were given the name and number of a bauble or two to knit each month , starting in January and finishing in December. I didn't keep up to date throughout the year but I did manage to complete and photograph all the suggested (or pick your own) baubles by December 2013.
I would call that a rip roaring success. If I knit more from the book I think I would use 4ply wool and smaller needles to make them a bit smaller as they were just a tad to big for the tree. Not to worry though, I hung them at the window of my craft room... and was very pleased with the result.
