Julekuler

 A while ago I got a gift from my eldest daughter. A book.
Just for fun , she said. It was not a hint ;) no, no.
But she loves the knitted Christmas balls and she cannot knit with 5 needles in the round... so...
What would you have done?
I have sent her to the shop and ordered 2 skeins yarn: 100% wool. Viking superwash.
 I have used 5 needles 3 mm. (US 2,5) 
And have knitted 4 balls for her Christmas tree.
Below the book with 55 patterns. Very good knitting instructions and clear patterns.
The book is translated in 8 languages!

Dear Ati!
Oh what a pleasure! One week ago I bought myself just this book!!
I love it, they made it so well.
If there is time after Christmas
I begin to knit "Julekuler" ....
It's also written in German and I
admire the little stories and the pictures. (..the ones with the Doll House..)

These just might be next year's Christmas ornament for my grandchildren! You've inspired me with your knitting. I now have one sock finished, and maybe I'll actually get the other one done some day. LOL

Hei!! Du må lære datteren din å strikke med 5 pinner!! De er morsomme å strikke! Fine ble de også!! Anne kari:-)

Ze zijn echt leuk he? Ga je ze nog afgeven, of houd je ze zelf?
Hier hangen er ook 5 te pronken. Maar of het daar bij blijft???

Fijne feestdagen, maar dat zal wel lukken met die gezelligheid.

Not a hint, eh? =) Beautiful ornaments. I don't knit, but I do appreciate other people's talents in that area.
