When my phone shoots this at me, it makes me crazy happy.
I participated in a gnome knit-along last month and now I’m an old lady who knits gnomes. Because gnomes are my latest flapdoodling flumadiddle, I spent some time doing a little research. (If one says they are into something, one must be prepared to have a conversation about that thing. To not be prepared is to be ridiculous.)
Four Fun Facts About Gnomes:
1. They’re vegetarians, and they love potatoes.
2. They can run 35 miles per hour and are seven times stronger than the average human.
3. Garden gnomes like to tell sad stories.
4. Siberian gnomes have sex with trolls and are big on revenge.
My gnome doesn’t yet have a gname (HA HA HA HA HA!), but when a name comes to her it will reflect the fact that she’s got tickets to the Fishbone show. She just might have sex with a troll, but it will be on her own terms and whatever, man. Dave Eggers mentions her in his latest novel, and that’s cool but it doesn’t make her like him any more. She’ll see you this weekend at the Lebanese nacho dump.
Her friends are strongly recommending that she get a restraining order against this guy.
What they don’t know is that she can make two phone calls and have him dead by morning.

Adorable! Mind sharing link to pattern? Thanks!!
I found her :)
This is my favorite thing I’ve read today. That gnome needs her own Instagram/story telling account.
I grew up with a coffee table Book of Gnomes that I adored. Love this. https://www.worldofbooks.com/en-us/books/wil-huygen/gnomes/GOR001276485?gclid=CjwKCAjw29vsBRAuEiwA9s-0BwbU6GtioExO6CWDyJX1wfIOEo2WsFfg0pmLxjnkrDryxRkCb7_6kBoCp1MQAvD_BwE
With fluffy cloud Sherpa on one side and a soft geometric or basket weave print twill on the other, this blanket offers both style and lounge-ability. It doubles as a chic throw blanket for the couch and your pets very own spot on the furniture. The smart colors complement any home d?©cor, and the trendy look of the basket weave print is totally Insta-worthy.

I love your gnome and her secret life an her amazing potential! On another note (bonus pun unintended), I’ll be traveling to the River City Showcase in O’Fallon with my kid and her marching band. Wondering if we’ll be seeing you and yours there as well.
