Rumpompom - PDF Knitting Pattern


The Story:

Even though I don’t live in a cold place now, I grew up braving the winters of western Canada. I well remember a white Christmas and the many layers of clothes needed to stay warm.

I also have vivid memories of going to church every Christmas Eve, sitting anxiously through mass, just waiting for the chance to go back to the home of our family friend for rum balls, chocolate dipped cookies and Christmas carols - one of which was always Little Drummer Boy.
