♥ 20 ♥ Gnomes, santas and maybe a lamb


 The gnomes and the santas are in place!


I did not make any of these myself.
Some are bought, many are gifts.
They stand here every Christmas,
some are added,
some have not survived since last Christmas.


I have not made this nativity crib either.
But I have purchased the booklet,
it arrived quickly and was not expensive,


Maybe I'll start with a lamb?
(I'm probably inspired by the book, "Julemysteriet"
by Jostein Gaarder, "The Christmas Mystery"
where we read one chapter each day in advent.)

Det er artig med nisser og julekrybber og juleting som man tar frem hvert år. Likte samlingen din :-)
Her leses også Julemysteriet om bjellelammet, et kapittel hver dag. Så lammet blir nok en god start på julekrybben du skal strikke - så får du litt ull å strikke av fren til neste jul.. ;-)
Ønsker deg en riktig god jul!

I love your gnomes and santas. The figures in that nativity booklet are surprisingly easy to knit and put together. I was talked into doing a shepherd for our Church children's crib and was very impressed with how clear the pattern was. Usually I struggle with stuffed toys etc, the shepherd stood up first time with no fight!

Thanks, Clare! I might be giving it a try during the holidays.
