Christmas 2016

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

I hope everyone had a happy and healthy Christmas!  Amalia requested an Arctic theme this year, but I kind of turned it into an Arctic exploration theme with paper boats, icicles, polar animals and sea creatures.  Amalia has already claimed the globe, which we found at Target.  I think my favorite thing was the giant knit polar bear, which was adapted from Donna Wilson's 35 Knitted Animals and Other Knitted Creatures book.  We followed the pattern using thicker wool roving and bigger needles.  He was extra-huggable!  The whale ornament (third photo) is available as a pattern from Mimi Kirchner on Etsy.  Instructions for making the paper icicles can be found here.  With our white walls it made the living room look like an ice cavern and they were a big hit with the kids.  Looking forward to lots more fun and creativity in 2017!  xo
