"Mother Earth"

Knit your own "Mother Earth" with a bunting
baby.  She's soft, nurturing, and holds her baby
close.  Picture with the maroon doll shows an
optional snap I sewed on the left hand to help
her hang on tightly to baby.

Mother is approx 9" tall & baby 2" tall if using
fingering weight yarn and size 1 needles.  I've
used unspun wool for her hair.  This is a 12 page
pattern, sent via email or pdf, your choice

Depending on how loose/tight you knit, requires
115-140 yards for mom, 16-20 yards of
flesh-colored yarn, & 10-12 yards bunting color
for baby.
Knitting Patterns
(waldorf inspired & sillies)
I use sock/fingering weight yarn only because that is my
preference.  All patterns can be knit in any yarn of your
choosing.  The heavier or thicker the yarn is, the larger the
finished project.

***Also, the patterns are written for knitting "in the round" with
either 3 or 4 needles or with circular needle (using "magic loop").  
This is actually really easy!!! When knitting with multiple needles,
you only ever knit with 2 needles at one time, the needles you're
not using are merely there to hold the other stitches while you're
not working them.



I love knitting this way for two reasons:  I don't have to sew seams
when I'm done with the knitted portions and it's faster because
you only use "knit" stitches to create a stockinette pattern (no
"purling").  

If you have questions about knitting "in the round", there are
many free online videos available on you tube and many free
tutorials available online!

Gnarly Gnobby Gnomes and Gnomelets
Gnarly Gnobby Gnomes are magical creatures that
from the gnarls of the Gnorwood trees, faraway in the
land of Gnibbentweed.

Both quick and nimble, their greatest joy is traveling
to our world, collecting the lost and abandoned
creative thoughts we carelessly leave behind us as
we “grow up” and mature,  attending to life’s
everyday demands.    Gathering and sweeping them
up with their tail, they condense and transform these
fragments into magical crystal gems.

It’s been said that whoever has a Gnarly Gnobby for
a friend, will always have a connection to a cache of
imagination tucked away.    

Bring one home and and his heart and gem will
belong to you.

Woolly Puffs are quiet, watchful
they’re always loyal and sweet – please
show them kindness.

Filled with warmth and tenderness,
befriend one, let him or her become your companion.   
They will stand guard for you absorbing  discord and
infusing all around them with feelings of harmony and
joy.
