The pattern gives you directions for three sizes. I made the largest one (it's 10 inches high, sitting, without the hat on) , shouldn't have though. Hat, beard, boots, and mittens are all the same size for all three sizes, so I had to knit another beard because the first one turned out ridiculously small. It's still not long enough, but it'll have to do.
Cinnamon hearts, a whole bag full of those! Oh, the bag I made with my leftover yarn from my first hand spun sock yarn. I put it in the washing machine to felt it, but it didn't. I put on some rubber gloves and had a go at it in hot water, rubbing away, and it took only a couple of minutes to see it felt in my hands. When I turned on the cold water tap, and let it run over the little bag, I swear I could hear a shriek of "Brrrrrrrrrr", it shrank instantly. ;o) With that I've used up every single inch of that hand spun, hand dyed yarn. That's a proud moment.
For the Gnome itself, I used Patons Classic Wool Merino, maybe a little too heavy for this project. I'm planning on making the medium sized one, but only the stars in the sky know, when I will get to it. ;o)
The pattern is by Alan Dart.
I wish I had a little guy like Hege's son, who would love my Gnome like that!
Oh well, I like it, that's good enough.
There's a new picture of a pair of Kyla mittens in my Readers Gallery, love the color Fredabeth used. ;o)
Totty Teabag left a comment, and look what I found out!!! We both blogged about the same gnome on the same day, and I love her gnome. She used both my favorite colores! ;o)
