The theme for the April Christmas ball in the Merry Knitalong is “Dancing around the tree” to celebrate the lovely little community that has come together around this project started by KnittingSarah on New Year’s Day and spread far and wide with help from Martine of the iMake podcast.
I can see improvement in my stranded knitting as I finish each month’s project and even my crochet hanging loops are beginning to look less wonky. I think I was so nervous about crochet that I was just holding the yarn way too tight, as I was with the stranded knitting when I first started out.
Pattern: #26 from Arne & Carlos’s 55 Christmas balls to knit.
Yarn: Millamia Naturally Soft Merino, colours Scarlet and Snow.
