Christmas gnoming

I don’t own that many Christmas decorations. When we lived at Pog Towers, Norman and I had a set of glass angels I hung from the window frame (many of which had become flightless over the years due to delicate wings), a few other bits and bobs and three baubles.  They are huge baubles (if I do say so myself) and we love them, but that was pretty much it as we didn’t need much more in such a small space.  So I decided to have a go at a bit of makingness to expand the collection.  And I would like to introduce…. Gnome:

Gnome is taken from an amazing pattern from someone called Miss Neriss.  You can find it here.

Miss Neriss is clearly a demon with a crochet hook as she thinks these can be worked up quickly.  I spent an evening on the beard alone, but I do think gnome was worth it.  And if I have time, I’ll try to pull together a Mrs Gnome for him in time for Christmas :o)

      well you must be! Your pattern said you could do one in two episodes of a tv show. Unless each episode is 8 hours long I am waaaaay behind you! I’m looking forward to making Mrs Gnome though :o)
