help!! I'm being invaded by gnomes!

I knitted up a gnome to Alan Dart's "Yuletide Gnomes" pattern, and I've already almost finished a second! I don't know if I can stop! :rofl:

But aren't they adorable???

That is the most beautiful Gnome.
I have seen the patterns how hard are they to knit and stitch?

It really is a cutie.

It's a good thing my DM can't see these pics, she'd be all over me to make her two or three dozen of those!

Come to think of it, I might just make her one anyway... :teehee:

I've looked, too, and apparently it was in an old magazine in the UK. We may be out of luck. :verysad:

The pattern is from Christmas 2005 edition of Simply Knitting magazine - a UK knitting magazine.

I sent the pattern to Mama Bear (Pink's mother) and a few other people from KH - I did make a post a while ago saying I had a chance to send some out and some members of this forum took me up on the offer. Unfortunately, that window of opportunity is now gone and I can't do this again.

I got my copy by contacting the Simply Knitting office and having a chat with a very helpful and nice lady there who sent it in the post to me.

You could try contacting them directly or ebay - but be warned its expensive on Ebay and also its a breach of copyright to sell it!!
