Leave Gnome Stone Unturned – December Mystery Gnome Event
This December, count down the days with a fun gnome event!
Longest Gnight has been a favourite holiday among the gnomes of the Grimblewoods for centuries. The Gnome of the Gnorth brings light to every house on the darkest day of the year. He’s ready to leave on his important journey this year, but his friend Gnombleberry is missing.

A little info about knitting Gnombleberry
This December gnome will be a simple gnome in terms of both skills and fiddliness, because I want you to have maximum fun and minimum bother.
-knitting and purling in the round
-picking up sts
-simple increases and decreases
As ever, there will be lots of video tutorials covering every step & skill I think you might need help with. Want extra reassurance? Check out previous gnome tutorial videos here and last year’s December Gnome here.
