"Longest Gnight has been a favorite holiday among the gnomes of 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 exchange. Making something for another gnome gives them creativity and anticipation." Sarah Schira
This December, unleash whimsy and playfulness. Imagined Landscapes has once again crafted an experience full of gnomes, surprises, and fun! That’s right, it’s a holiday mystery gnome knitalong! Come celebrate Longest Gnight with the gnomes.
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 your 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.
How do you participate? First, purchase the pattern from Imagined Landscapes HERE.
Then get your yarn. We've put together four fanciful color combinations, perfectly coordinated and measured to get you through this holiday adventure of Gnome-Made Gifts. Each kit includes five mini-skeins of Dream In Color Smooshy with Cashmere (25 grams / 88 yards, 70% Superwash Merino, 20% Cashmere, 10% Nylon).
We are currently sold out of the Orsys and Pippy bundles. Not to worry, though. If you love these color combinations, you can make up your own bundle with Smooshy Minis, available HERE.
The five colors you'll need for each bundle are as follows:
Orsys - Joshua Tree (or Green Light), Miami Red, Sprout, Azure Cove, and Rabbit Ears
Pippy - Violet's Blueberry, Chili (or Tex Mex), Bermuda Teal, Sunflower, and Tumblewwed
We also have nine different Oh Gnome! Smooshy Quartets - 4 colorful skeins of Dream In Color's Smooshy (210 yards, 85% SW Merino wool, 15% Nylon), available HERE. You can add the fifth color with a Smooshy Mini, or stash dive for the final meber of your quintet.
