A Nordic Garland Christmas

So I’ve finished my Rowan Nordic Garland just in time for Christmas. I’m really pleased with how it turned out – it fits perfectly above the mantelpiece by the fire in our front room. It was a great little festive project to work on throughout December. Hope you like it too.

A big thank you to everyone that took the time to comment on the #RowanNordicGarland Knit-a-Long on my blog, facebook page or on Instagram, and to those of you who shared your photos with me of trees that you knitted or other handmade Christmas projects.  Its been great fun and I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have – part of the fun has certainly been sharing all of my updates with you and sharing the Knit-a-Long with my knitting buddy Anne who has been knitting the Garland too.  Don’t forget to pop over to Life Lackadaisical Blog and check out Anne’s version 🙂

Now I think I’m just about ready for Christmas… how about you?
Happy holidays, have a great christmas and see you in 2015 for more yarn-tastic projects 🙂

The Nordic Garland is knitted in Rowan Felted Tweed DK and the pattern can be found in Easy Fairisle Knits by Martin Storey.
