I have already made some of these ornaments, but some I have missed. There are so many different kinds and I am glad to see them here all in one collection! Since I "do" Christmas year around, I will be making several of them that I missed. Last year I used some as gift toppers and everyone seemed to enjoy them.

A friend always gives hand-crafted ornaments for Christmas her ideas are amazing, but she can't knit. Now I can give her hand-knit ornaments and knit them for others too (and for our tree)

I am looking for a miniature cable knit scarf. Anyone find one. Not good at making up a pattern. Ornament size Kathy

I adore doing Christmas ornaments. These are great.

Love to see you sharing the pattern for Minutia. Are you planning on sharing the two other years as well. I made these for family members one year for Christmas. They were a huge hit.
