Christmas busy

They don't call this the "busy time of the year" for nothing, I'm literally knitting and crocheting all day just to get everything done (10 more days to go).

The nativity set is a great success again, just like last year. As soon as I make some, they sell.
I mostly make the Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus set but there is also 3 wise men, 2 shepherds and an angel.
The free pattern is from Whistle & Ivy

My own design of the Scandinavian Christmas Gnomes are the other popular item this year.
I think I've made about 10 of these and still getting requests for more!

If you Google "Christmas crafts" my website gnome post is mentioned somewhere in the top (at least right now it is :)

I also send a suggestion about the Gnomes to "Blij dat ik Brei" (I translated the pattern in Dutch) and she wrote about it in her blog right away.

All this brings a lot more people to this website which is a nice thing.

I think I'll probably have to call a halt to making things for others soon so I can still finish my own Christmas armrest blanket before the 25th. I'm about 3/4 finished so I have good hope it can be done.
