Whit's Knits: Festive Felted Garland

The soothing pleasure of handling merino fleece, the rhythmic motion of needle felting, and the magical transformation from fleece to ball combine to make this a really satisfying (and relaxing) project. A great reminder to slow down and have some fun, whether you're decorating for Christmas, a birthday celebration, or any old time of the year.

This is a wonderful communal project, easy enough for kids and for not-so-crafty friends. So get the whole family involved or invite some friends over for a felting party. The beautiful hand made garland you end up with is just an added bonus!

Whit's Knits: Holiday Bird Ornaments

The song and flight of birds are miracles of nature perfectly compatible with the miraculous spirit of the holiday season, a spirit of industry, generosity and joy. Everything we make this time of year seems to be imbued with cheer, like the excited chirp of one bird to another.

I had a lot of fun experimenting with different fibers to bring these five unique birds to life, each with its own personality. Some have the happy chubbiness of city sparrows, while others appear to be on more intense missions, streamlined for efficiency. They're so quick and easy to knit that you'll have your own ornothological family before you know it!

Molly's Sketchbook: Simple Sewn Bird Ornaments

I used a bunch of special fabrics to make these little birds, mixing the delicate Meadow line with bolder favorites like Kona Cotton and Cake Rock Beach to create a vibrant patchwork flock. They are easy and quick to sew. You could make one to bring as a gift to your next holiday party or make a bunch to hang on your own tree. Either way these little guys will spread holiday cheer wherever they fly! --Molly
