Ganders and felt stars

Ganders and felt stars

The gander socks are making progress. I’m working at the second sock now and left the grafting of the toe for later (because I love grafting so much, that I keep it for the last moment like the cherry on a cake – NOT).

A while back I made this felt star from a pattern by the purl bee. Now it’s waiting for the tree to arrive. We have not yet bought one, but since we have a higher ceiling now, this year’s Christmas tree will be large.

I regret not stuffing this a little bit. It get’s kind of wonky and is not easily put in place again. If you want to make this felt star, too, I recommend a little bit of stuffing for the largest size. The smaller sizes are probably doing ok without.

UPDATE: I did stuff it now and it looks a lot better. Click here for pictures and how I have done it.)
