Go Big or Go Gnome

πŸ“Έ Sarah Schira

Merry Christmas! If you are really into gnomes, you can knit a hat, mittens, and pullover with these super adorable yard fellows, as I am now calling them. This is a free pattern by Sarah Schira. (Knitty website link) I would probably not knit them in red and blue, as they are looking too All-American for me. I think I would go red and green because, hey, you might as well go big or go gnome for Christmas. What color would you knit your gnomes?

Meep was a big hit with JoJo. Now we are waiting for the child to awaken so we can open presents. I made cranberry orange waffles for breakfast. Later we can FaceTime with the other kids.

Moondrake Yarn Advent Day 25. FLOOF!
The entire yarn advent, lined up in my order.

I have to admit I feel a little overwhelmed by my choice of advent pattern and how to organize the colors. I almost wish I had just knit them in the order I opened them so I didn’t have to think about it. Any suggestions?

I hope you have a wonderful holiday today!

  1. The gnome set is very cute. So with last year’s advent I had the same problem making decisions and although I stopped to work on my jumper, I am already wondering about the order I have chosen, but I will keep going. It’s a relief that this years is a pretty clear rainbow type order with the addition of grey and pink. I am sure whatever you pick it will be lovely.
