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.

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!
