It’s not too late to join! The knitting is fun, simple, and gently paced.
This December, unleash whimsy and playfulness. I’ve crafted an experience full of gnomes, surprises, and fun! That’s right, it’s a holiday mystery gnome knitalong!
You’ll get an email every day from December 1st through 24th. On some of those days you’ll open it up to find a clue - a small bit of knitting instructions for the next step in the gnome. The other days will bring charming stories, special treats, and a recipe or two for traditional gnomish delights. After the 24th a few more surprises will come your way but all the gnome knitting clues will be done.
Longest Gnight has been a favourite holiday among the gnomes of the Grimblewoods for centuries. It's when the Gnome of the Gnorth brings light to every house on the darkest day of the year. The gnomes of the Grimblewoods also work to create joy during the dark days through their handmade gift exchanged. Making something for another gnome gives them creativity and anticipation.
Sarah Schira from Imagined Landscapes is doing it again... a brilliant Gnome Knit Along with nearly daily clues, updates, stories, recipes and fun for the month of December. If you've done these before, you know just how fun they can be. These knit gnomes are accessible to knitters of all skill levels and people of all levels of busyness! Just a small amount of knitting every few days, and if you fall behind? Who cares. It's low stress, and all about fun.
A note from the dyer
I've knit many gnomes in the past, and have absolutely loved putting together these kits for you. Each kit has a colour theme, as well as a fancy dancy special base. Because really, who doesn't need a sparkle gnome... or a tweed gnome... or maybe one of each! The sparkle is a bit hard to see in pictures, but trust me when I say it is absolutely delightful in person. For each kit, colours 1 and 5 (the main colour, and the beard colour) have been dyed on a special base to add fun and flare to your gnew friend.
The Gnome-Made Gifts Pattern is available from Imagined Landscapes here
Each set contains 5 x 20gm of fingering wt yarn
