Tree Trimming, Disco Style



It's Raining Men FO's! I have been diligently working on my holiday knits, even finishing some of them. I just need to snap some pictures to share them on FO Fridays. In the meantime, there is the pressing need to trim the sadly naked tree in my living room. This year, I am smitten with (you guessed it) SMITTENS! Oh, if only I had known about smittens a few months ago! Then there could have been 24 of them lined up to count down the days till Christmas. But at least there will be a few to dress up the tree this season. You just got to love a project that goes fast and uses stash yarn. Here's a picture of the advent calendar we are using this year. It is made out of some paper gift sacks picked up at the craft store. Add some decorative stickers, stencil in the numbers and hang up with some clothes pins. They might not be smittens but my little boy doesn't care, as long as they hold the all important treats! (They also can be reused as gift tags. Just punch out a hole, add a little something sweet inside, and string with a bit of ribbon or yarn).

Put on some Bee Gees and your elevator platforms, then disco on over to TAMI'S blog for some groovy WIP's!

  8. You are very creative! I must confess that the only holiday decor that is up around here so far is the chocolate advent calendar that I picked up from World Market for my 14 yr. old. I love the smittens and the stencilled gift sacks!
