Through the Trees


I am happy to share with you one of my super secret knitting projects.  These little trees were a ton of fun to make and I might have made 33 of them...yep.  I was in a tree knitting frenzy!


My husband and I have an odd habit of saving the used corks of wine bottles for no reason at all.  Then every now and then I throw them out.  Over the summer I decided to amass as many as possible.  I remember seeing this pattern and knew that I'd like to use the corks.


I decided to use worsted weight wool and loved how they look chunky!!  So adorable in person.

  6. Okay, it's getting eerie, how much we have in common. : ) My husband saves wine corks as well, we have bags full! He once made a wreath out of them but I am not sure what the ones he has amassed at this point will be for...I keep teasing him that he is going to build a chair out of them! Our daughter Kate even gave him a wine cork container to fill up; it sits on top of our hutch!

    I love this idea. I am going to check out the revelry notes and keep my fingers crossed that it is an easy pattern!

    1. well that is sad. I'd say it's 50/50 here in the US between cork and screw top. My husband prefers cork so that's what I look for when shopping.
