Christmas ornaments and knitting

You might not be able to see this but the sock is actually nicely scalloped. It is Scallops Cuff Socks from Crystal Palace using Panda wool in red cinnamon colorway. I love that yarn!!

The ornament is from my fav ornament book (well dog-eared) from Ann Stearns. I used a blended hologram filament (Sulky) and a glow in the dark thread. We have had the giggles in my office as we took turns going in the dark bathroom to check it out!! I am going to do some of Mark Myer's angels in this and will post soon.

I am still thinking about podcasting and am going to make a trial post today or the 'morrow to see how it flies. I learn so much from the knitter's blogs that I think it begs to be done by us too!! If I can figure out Skype and if anyone is on skype we can tape interviews too! Cool!!

The ornament is lovely. I have not tried that as of yet. I must learn to knit socks too. Looking forward to the pod cast.

Very pretty ornament. I envy those of you daring enough to use glass ornaments. I can only use "satin"-covered styrofoam because I'm a klutz.

Thanks sooo much for the great comments! Not too much of a tease, but I am writing down stuff I would talk about in a podcast...kinda copying my favs in the knitting world! Stay tunes.
