The knitting needles have been busy, busy. I thought that maybe if I turned out a few helpers I would be able to relax awhile. Hopefully these little guys are elves and not gnomes. There is a close resemblance between the two. I've used this pattern from Plain and Joyful Living before, here, and called them gnomes. I even used the same green and cream yarn. But I want them to be elves now. Elves are more helpful this time of year. The 3 in the back are Christmas babies made from my hand-spun merino, so soft and squishy. I'm hoping that some real babies are going to love them.
You may have gathered by now that I am a classic literature junkie. Before we even decorated the tree, Erin unpacked the box of Christmas books that we keep hidden along with the ornaments. A Christmas Carol is definitely a holiday favorite in our house. We even have it on audio book so we can listen to it in the car when we aren't singing to Bing Crosby or Johnny Mathis. I guess we're into classic Christmas music too. Do you consider Bing and Johnny classic?
