Christmas pickle


I made this back in May and posted it on my DA but I wanted to wait until December to post it here

I'm just as confused as Germany

Anyway I found out about the Christmas Pickle that I guess is a tradition in the US and people thought it came from Germany because the ornaments were made in Germany idk

here more info https://www.whychristmas.com/customs/christmaspickle.shtml

It takes approximately 1400 meters of yarn to make a simple sweater and at least twice that to knit a "fancy" one. It also takes 4pounds of clean fleece to make the yarn.

I think one thing that you might want to change is make Ottawa's body a bit smaller

As an American, I'd never heard about this until earlier this year, and that was from a British guy on Youtube talking about this supposed 'American tradition'.

this is actually a thing in Germany, but only in a special part of it I know it from friends that live in Stuttgart. But here in Bavaria no one knows about it xD
