Holiday Knits: Owl Ornaments

121613_owl_ornaments

I’m down to the wire this year finishing up my Christmas knitting. Part of the reason is that I keep adding projects! I’ve got two in the works that I plan to finish in the next few days, but I thought I’d share a few gifts that have already been given.

I was invited to my first cookie exchange party this year, which was a lot of fun! I still have a bunch of cookies around the house. We also did an ornament exchange and I decided that it would be a good time to create one of those cute ornament projects I’ve been eyeing on knitting blogs, pinterest and Ravelry. After perusing the options, I went with Owl Ornaments by Emily Kintigh – a free pattern on Ravelry. I liked the options for stitch patterns and the opportunity to play with color.

I made one for the exchange and enjoyed it so much I made a grouping to give as a present to a friend. The types of buttons you choose can really add personality to these little guys!

Have you made any ornaments for the holidays? Feel free to share any of your favorite patterns in the comments 🙂
