Cracking Chrissie Korkies!

Well the festivities came and went with the blinking of an eye, and the cracking of a Korknisse!!

I wanted to knit many more of these little korkies than I had time for, but next year I plan to be very prepared!

These little fellows were knit up and packaged in pretty shiny colours in preparation for the gifting :)

Very well received!

It's a fabulous little pattern, originally sourced here, but Elliphantom's troops of 'nisse are VERY inspiring too! :) I altered the pattern somewhat - no ribbing and basically knit intuitively seeing as the design is rather simply (yet ingenious!!) and stopped/decreased when it seemed right!

I loved these little people so much it was very difficult to part with them! I think I'll have to knit up a few to keep our mantelpiece company *grin*

I hope everyone enjoyed the festivities with much laughter and love and remains safe and happy as we encounter the New Year!
