|tiny little knit gnome|
A friend and co-worker of mine will be moving to South East Asia for the next two years to be a Journeyman. I'm super excited for her but will miss her around here. We had a staff dinner last week and some of us said nice things to her, gave cards and so on. I got it in my head that day at work that I could knit her something small after work and before dinner. I found this gnome pattern and knew it would be pretty simple and the perfect little travel companion for her while she tours the world.
There was a construction delay when trying to leave work.
Then I didn't have skin colored yarn so I had to go to hobby lobby.
Then there was traffic.
Then once home Chuy wanted to snuggle and lay on my knitting.
Then my dad called.
I managed to get this little guy knit in a little over an hour and was only a little late to dinner (though I got there right when our group was seated...so I like to think I was perfectly on time).
She loved him and I already have plans to knit some more. I found a lady gnome variation and I foresee some cute little Clauses for Christmas this year!
