apologies if this has been posted elsewhere - I'm trying to keep up with all the threads, but maybe I missed it.

anyhoo, even though I'm not really into stuffed animals and things of this nature, this is just too cool!!

I think I'll have to make one for my teenage son, as we're both big "Amelie" fans!

Oh, thanks for that link! :cheering:
I've been recently looking into knitted stuffed toys to make for my cousin, but the instructions confused me. These pics make it much more clear to me!

Since I got some stuffing from my SP all I now need is to chose the yarn for it :thinking:
Wouldn't acrylic be better for a toy since you can wash it?

*Goes to search through her stash*

Totallly cute! But I'm a little confused by the web site. When I went to the home page, I didn't see any links for otehr knitting stuff. How did you find the pattern area?

Thanks for the link!

They don't have much in the way of patterns or even knitting supplies. But the gnome is linked from here (http://www.seasonsoriginals.biz/shoppe/product_info.php?cPath=29_95&products_id=170&osCsid=f321f54f0679eef81a837c897c037d32).

You know I'm not really into gnomes. I thought hte whole bit in the movie amellie where she takes her fathers gnome and sends it sround the world so he'll get a hint was pretty funny. And when I saw this gnome I made the widdy biddy liddle noice people make when they something cutesy wootsey poopie doppie....um..ahem.....yeah... :rollseyes: so maybe I'll make one. My sister in law is preggo. I could knit with my son.

The "Amelie" thing was actually taken from fact because some folks in Europe had been doing that for years - but I love that whole idea and I adore the Travelocity gnome's wry comments, too!

:D

"I don't know if it's possible to pinpoint the earliest instance of gnome-napping, but the first reported case of a 'roaming gnome' took place in the mid-1980s," says Mr. Emery. "It was documented by an Australian folklorist named Bill Scott, who wrote of a gnome disappearing from the front lawn of a Sydney family." Shortly thereafter, the family received a postcard from the gnome saying he was vacationing in Queensland. The gnome returned two weeks later, coated with brown shoe polish - a souvenir suntan."
