Swedish Jultomar

Meet my Swedish Jultomar otherwise known as a Yuletide Gnome.
 I just love knitting these gnomes (pattern by Alan Dart) they have such character.
He has a bit of weight in that plump behind so that he perches perfectly.
I'm liking the hat so much that I'm considering upsizing it for adult wear :-)
If the popularity of last years Teeny Tomte (mini gnomes) is anthing to go by he is going to be one popular little fella. I have one of those knitted but I have yet to make him up so when I do I'll show you the comparision in size.

Don't forget that if you would like to win a set of my papercrafted buttons enter my giveaway and leave me a comment here by midnight Saturday 20th
