Gnome Invasion!!!

So last week a wonderful lady asked me if I could make a certain knitted baby doll. I still need to give that a try, but it made me think of the Gnome pattern that I’ve had forever in my printed off patterns. So I went flipping through my three ring binders and found it, and remember knitting it a looooooong time ago and not liking it so much. But I thought I’d give it a go again, and I think my knitting must have improved enough that I actually find this pattern quite enjoyable now! So much so that we have this, in just two short days of knitting!

Aren’t they adorable??? Each one is about 8 1/2-9 inches tall from toes to the top of the hat. Even my teenager kiddo’s like them! Don’t tell them I told ya though. But when I come into a room and two of them are sitting there with the dollies, and I ask them, “what are you doing?” and they reply back with, “nothing! Are you gonna make more of these?”, and then start requesting colors, yeah, I find that amusing. The next question they ask is, “what are ya gonna do with them?” And I tell them, “well, give them away of course!”, and they say “but you’ll make more, right?”  You betcha!

The white one is actually made with some of that white yarn with a sparkle thread running through it that you find at Christmas time. I was thinking it would make a lovely princess gnome but as soon as the kiddo’s saw me making it they said that it was Gandalf the White and now I must make a Gandalf the Grey to go with it! I guess I should go have a look around the yard for a couple little sticks for staffs also! Gandalfs gotta be all like…

And that’s all I’ve got for now! It’s summer break here starting this week!  Wooohoooo! Another school year gone by! Gotta get my stuff together for evals and then we’re good to go!

TTYL 🙂
