These little lovelies are Magic Yarn Balls, destined for some knitting friends. Evidently the idea for these came from a kids book, The Children's Year, but they are loads of fun for adults. Here's what you do: find some pretty yarn and other small treats, and, starting with one goody in the middle, you wrap the yarn into a new ball, hiding treats as you make the ball bigger and bigger. I think this will become a stocking tradition for our family, starting this year with the little guy! And, they make a pretty nice holiday decoration too, I think.
