Decking the Halls Knit Style

Every Christmas I get a wild idea that maybe this will finally be the year I actually make a few of those knitted ornaments and decorations I admire. Once again I'm afraid I must admit it won't be this year. But for those of you who have the time you might like to consider a few fun options like these.

I thought this knitter did a lovely job on her version of a knit star ornament by Karolina Eckerdal.

These Pint Size Pines cork toppers by Julie Tarsha are hot on Ravelry right now.

The 2012 Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts issue has some adorable stockings I'd love to make for family members, especially the little Swedish horse version (it about killed me to not be able to submit a design for this issue when I saw the sub call from Interweave, but other obligations precluded that idea).

For those with a bit less time available, here are some interesting stitch-related ideas including knit-themed letterpress greeting cards,

free downloadable stitch-print wrapping paper by minieco (and other yarn wrap ideas on my Pinterest board like the one shown in the first photo at the top of the post from the Boxwood Clippings blog), 

and these free downloadable knit print gift tags from eatdrinkchic.com.

I hope these ideas help you get started decking your halls! Now I'd better get busy with same...
