It's starting to look a lot like Christmas!

Christmas Tree with hand knit mitten ornaments

I finished my handspun, handknit little mittens ornaments, and hung them in the tree today. I think I need to steam iron them to get them to be a little flat, and I'd like to add a few more, but overall I think they are cute.

Here they are all 22 of them: used up ~ 450yds of my yarn, only enough for half a mitten left over.

And while I was busy decorating the tree, Denny and Maggie were checking out the gift bags.

I wish I know what Maggie was thinking here. Looking for Denny's opinion?

The decoration seems more interesting then the bags.

Nothing for me? Sniff, sniff.

what a wonderful idea! I'm going to steal it, because there's no way I'll ever spin enough yarn with my drop spindle to knit anything substantial, lol.

Your Mittens Tree is an incredible art show of it's own ! Really well done. And your pups, too cute. If my Emma were there, you'd not find anything left in the vacinity of the tree, but everything moved into her 'lair ' (dog crate, her room), so our tree must be up on a table. Your dogs are so polite !

Your tree is so beautiful and it's still standing with three pups! Remarkable.

The mittens are a beautiful touch and in such pretty holiday colors. Wow! Lovely.
