You know the christening shawl I shared last week? The little one who it’s for is referred to as Gnome.
You gnome what is about to happen, cause I will keep making puns till the cows come gnome if I can get away with it!
The featured knit of this week is knit following the free pattern: The Scrappy Gnome Hat by Melody Lisa and was super quick on 9mm needles. Truth be gnome, I was so deep in the knit gnome with the christening shawl I had forgotten Engels request to sneak in a gnome hat too. So a quick knit was a win in that regard!
That, and I was desperate to knit with anything that wasn’t lace weight or white by that point!
As you can see here the gnome hat is lovingly modelled by Snorlax as he was the only thing with the correct head size on hand. Since this photo, we now have a second Snorlax – a squish mallow one! To go with my Gengar and Inklings Pikachu.
Theres not much else to say right now…there’s been a lot going on, but nothing I’m willing to share…
Oh well, perhaps I will have more to say next post! Until then, stay safe!
