get it while it's hot
The pattern is from KnitPicks Winter Wonderful pattern set. It comes with a whole bunch of patterns for Christmassy items, but truthfully I really only bought it for the knitted string of popcorn and cranberries. My desire was to make garland for the tree.
I think it’s going to be a very long term project. Because these little beauties are fiddly. Each one takes me about an hour. Maybe as I make more I’ll get better/faster, but for now, they’re time sucking little things. But I am enamored with them, so I’ll keep knitting. Maybe for this year I’ll just have a short garland to go over a picture, or something? Or over my non-existing mantle? I know it seems like I should be able to get further than a 3 foot/1 meter strand, but I’m only doing one a day. The frustration level is a little high on these too. That’s all I can do in one day. One kernel of popcorn. So it’s going to take me a while to even get to that length.
But aren’t they cute?!
cuter than the real thing
A fat free snack.
