|Easter knitted designs|
Arne and Carlos, two very talented knitting designers from Norway have made knitted baubles/balls popular world wide. They have a huge following, Japan being their latest conquer. I am a little bit in love with their designs. I too blogged about their knitted Christmas balls here: Christmas baubles
It is with thanks as always with anything knitted in my household to mamma for teaching me and making me persevere with knitting on dpn. But I can safely say I am loving it and now hope when I have a bit more time on my hands to try them at sock knitting. It too was on my to make list for this year.

I knew what I wanted to do with all my baubles and the collection is growing weekly as I am addicted to making them. I wanted a bare branched tree in my house with all these colourful baubles dangling from it. In reality when you live in an English house dating back to the 1600's, the ceiling height is a little prohibitive to bring in a tree. So I made do with some twigs on the side board. It sufficed and I enjoy them, but it wasn't quite the picture I had conjured up in my minds eye. So what is a girl to do? Go on location of course! I left home an hour early for work today and took all the back roads to work with one thing in mind... find a bare tree in a location that would show off the English countryside in late Winter/early spring and by George, I think I found it. Despite not having the brilliant blue sky I longed for.
