It’s almost Longest Gnight but there hasn’t been a single snowflake fluttering in the sky. The Grimblewoods are a dreary, frozen brown landscape, and the gnomes are getting worried. Without snow in the darkest days, the light doesn’t reflect very well and houses and hearts seem darker this year. The littlest gnomes are especially anxious – how will the Gnome of the Gnorth light lanterns on Longest Gnight if his sleigh can’t slide speedily through the snow?

Key Dates

Dec 1-24: daily updates, all gnome knitting clues released by Dec 24

Dec 24: entry form (for Instagram entries) and finished gnome thread (for Ravelry entries) open

Dec 25-31: more updates sent, dates are a surprise

Jan 1: last day to enter for a grand prize

Jan 5: prizes announced, clues integrated into a single pattern


I like to keep the December mystery gnome simple and achievable!

Mr. Gnightley is on the smaller side, more of a size to fit in with Gnova from Gnome-made Gifts, or Gnellie from Oh, Gnome, You Didn’t - around 5-7” / 13-18 cm.
