Happy February…

A little bit of fluff to show… Based on the Gno Fun Like Gnome Fun pattern with random bits of this and that. Making progress in Starflanket… 4’ diameter, shown.

Finishes…..

It looks like I’m having fun with this…SMH. Thinking about March….leprechaun….green….hmmm. Working the brioche section of Starflanket with colors A and B….feels like it is taking forever.

January Gnoming….

Small projects look like they knit sooo fast! Added 2 rounds of increases at p-rnd 3 and 6. I prefer a plump looking gnome 🙂 also, just purling the body. The cable pattern will be lost in this dark yarn.

What’s on My Needles

My new start for 2022…Here We Gnome Again by Sarah Schira. Yes, the hat is fiddly. But, how cute? Ice blue acrylic of unknown origin seems a perfectly cold January color. The alternative is to work on my Starflanket which is in the naughty corner. I don’t like the way the inc/dec sections of the […]
