Pattern : SIA - Knitted Christmas Star by Arne & Carlos
Yarn : WATG Glitterball Sock Yarn in Disco Ball Grey (help double)
Needle : 3mm DPNS
Love the result and can't wait to get our tree and place it on top. However, it was a challenging knit especially pulling the points together and staying focused for the decreases. I used Judy Becker's Magic Cast on for toe-up socks. I love this cast on.

Pattern Wooly Mushroom by Tuija Sulisalo
Yarn : Oddments of Bulky 12ply wool. Patons Jet 12ply in Port, Cream and Mocha
Needle : 5mm DPNS
Again I used Judy Becker's Magic Cast on. The pattern is designed to be knitted in the round from the bottom up. It was challenging to get the additional cast on stitches for the cap to be right way round and not upside down - lot's of trial and error. Great for mastering seamless knitting.

Pattern Christmas Toadstools by Merrin Curley
Yarn : Oddments of Bulky 12ply wool. Patons Jet 12ply in Port, Cream and Mocha
Needle : 3.25mm DPNS
Again I used Judy Becker's Magic Cast on. A great pattern to practice knitting in the round with increases and decreases. Enjoyed using up oddments of yarn in purples, maroons, browns and creams.
