You may remember the adorable double-knit Happy Stitch earrings which my daughter made for me just two years ago(and the feline disaster that befell them (click the above link for the full story). They have been lovingly worn by me every since. Poseidon, who is our current cat-in-residence, has not been given the opportunity to once again have his way with them. I keep them carefully stored away from any such mischief making!

test-knitting mini earrings for size

Well, after a few test-knit samples to ascertain the proper size, Holly has done it again. This year’s birthday gift from her was a specially commissioned pair of micro-Chinese Lantern earrings! They are adorable, and the perfect accessory. I am delighted!

 

Aren't they lovely?  Poseidon has been kept well away from these beauties!

If you are interested in knitting your own Chinese Lanterns, you will find the pattern, along with 9 others, in A Little Book of BIG Holes for Hand-Knitters, the new e-book I released last month!
