Oooo, a little toadstool house.
Who lives here, I wonder?
Of course! It's the little Korknisse!
How lovely to see you.
How are you?
Are there any more of you in there?
Oh how super! Lots of Korknisse.
And rainbow colours, too.
Please can I have a nice photo of you?
Oh now, that's just silly.
Thank you, that's better.
Now, can I take a photo indoors, so we can see you in all your summer finery?
Right, in a line please.
Really. You are just being naughty now.
Stop buggering around and behave.
That's more like it. Thank you.
Well now, that's just plain showing off now, fellas.
Oh dear, I think the sun got to me today.
'Korknisse' means 'cork elf' in Norwegian. They are traditionally knitted Christmas ornaments, but I crochet mine Amigurumi-stylie and love 'em at any time of the year.
I've already made Spring Korknisse here and Royal Wedding Korknisse here too.
Mad, but true.
