Okay so that was bad, but I think my little gnome is rather cute!  My friend collects gnomes, so I thought this would be a perfect birthday gift!

He's made in a few pieces - hat/head/body, the bottom, and the felt beard.  He was great for using up some of my random scraps and he was a quick crochet, too!  I edited the pattern a bit because my safety eyes were larger than 6 mm and I thought he'd look bug eyed otherwise.

Finally - a finished afghan!

I finally finished!  Woo hoo! This the biggest crochet project that I've ever done, so I'm rather proud of it.

My first completed afghan!

It's for my friend's little boy, who will be a year and a half or so at Christmas.  Some of the granny's daughters came from the Granny's Daughters 2 swap on Craftster and the rainbow GD's were the inspiration for this afghan.

I started it back in June, but worked on it very inconsistently since then.  With Christmas coming up, I got my rear in gear and finished it up this past week.  It's super soft now that it's been washed.  I used Red Heart Super Saver and was concerned that it would be scratchy, so I'm glad to see that it's perfectly cuddly!
