Today was the day to get the tree set up and see what it looked like with all those balls I made during the last year. It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, even though it doesn't really feel like it. It's close to 80°F outside.
This year the decorations consist of the 55 balls I knit earlier this year and some toy-themed ornaments that are partly from a trip to Germany and partly from a cheap drugstore set from my first Christmas in my own home, which has a lot of sentimental value. I think they all work nicely together.
It all looks better than I'd expected. I just hope I put the new balls high enough up on the tree so that Kate doesn't snatch any of them.
