My advent calendar

Today is the 1st of December. The countdown to Christmas is officially started and now you are allowed to start opening your Advent Calendar.

I knitted this calender last year. I improvised one of the Alan Dart’s patterns I had bought many years ago. The original pattern was made with red and green yarn, but I thrown in many different pastel colours. I am rather pleased with how it came out.

Most of the toys in the pockets are my originals designs. It was such a delightful project. Although it took me almost two weeks to make the calender, I enjoyed every minute of it. I would like to design more Christmas decorations. May be I should decorate a whole tree with my knitted toys some day.

And a knitted ginger bread house and a knitted Yule log with mini Santas on the top. Yes, many Santas.

I took it to the market yesterday for a display on my stall. It was admired by many.
