The Twelve Days Of Christmas Rugs - Day 1

Well, let's see if I can actually do this! 
 I am going to post 12 Christmas or winter-themed rugs each and every day.  The last rug should be posted on Christmas Eve.  

Meet Tomte The Elf
Designed and hooked by Kris Miller (c) 2013
A tomte (Swedish) or a tonttu (Finnish) is a small elf-like man. In Nordic folklore, he was the guardian in care of protecting a farmer's house and barn and often did his work at night when everyone was asleep. In modern times, a tomte traditionally has a white beard, wears a red cap and delivers packages to children on Christmas Eve.
