little tree (Ravelry link to free pattern) made it to its destination yesterday, so now I can share it with you. I wanted something I could send to our son of the heart (a term I learned from a knitting friend years ago), something not too big and cumbersome, something fun. When I saw the pattern for what I call the portable Christmas tree, I decided that was the right choice. I actually didn't knit the entire pattern, because it started getting too tall. Liat offered to make the angel for the top of the tree (she hasn't lost her beading skills, I'm happy to say!) and she contributed some beads and charms for the decorations, too. Meital and I sewed things on.
I have many other knitting projects on my needles right now, and deadlines are rapidly approaching. Time to get busy! I hope you're all having a wonderful day.
