A cure for what ails ya

gnome

If the day is going to hell in a handbasket...a gnome can never hurt. An Alan Dart Gnome is a real pick me up. I battled the crummy weather home today and my truck met the house a bit on the slide into the garage. arg. Okay, it's not serious - barely a scratch - though if you want to know what color my house is, just look at the rear quarter of my truck...a little buffing will go a long way today. So not a huge deal, but da-yum - give me a break, already. sheesh.

So when I saw my airmail package peeking out - I knew my Bumper Book of Knitting arrived - thank you God *sigh*. First, I saw Susan's gnome and fell in love, then Shannon made one - that one nearly hurts my teeth, it is so sweet. I may just make him to be my "bad day lovie". Or maybe I'll just keep the magazine under my pillow...and a little choxie never hurts.

Love the gnome! Reminds me a little of the Roaming Gnome from Expedia! Can't wait to see him knit up! Sux about the truck....the weather was icy and snowy here too.

I'm excited to see how your gnome comes out. I also want to know how difficult/fiddly it is to knit. That's the only thing keeping me away.

How do you like The Red Tent? I have 40 pages to go. I hope you're enjoying it as much as I am.

You are going to love knitting this pattern. They are so much fun to make, and the directions are very clear. I cannot wait to see how you like it.

Oh, you have to make the gnome, Stacey. I love my little guy. The tweedy version with the brown beard is so great. I have room to love him too.
Sorry about the sliding, it has been an icy winter for sure. I am glad you are okay.

I think they are cute, but I don't know how I'd feel to have one in my house. I think the fact that I can't see his eyes creep me out. Is that weird? :)
