Gnome-Made Gifts MKAL Yarn Packs - Smooshy with CashmereDream in Color
A gnome named Gnova has just moved to the Grimblewoods and is worried about making friends, while young Gnewt is taking over the handmade gift exchange this year. What can possibly go wrong?
It's that time of the year again! The annual December Mystery Gnome Knitalong. The pattern pre-purchase is now available on ravelry. See below for more information on how this MKAL works.
Dream in Color has put together 4 different mini-skein yarn packs especially for this MKAL. Each pack contains five color-coordinated mini-skeins of Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere (70% superwash merino wool, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon).
Note: the pattern is not included here because you will want to sign up directly for the MKAL to ensure that the daily clues and goodies are sent directly to your mailbox. You can purchase the pattern directly from the designer on ravelry, just follow this link.
How it works:
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.
