Work-in-Progress Wednesday


It's not a bowling pin, although you'd be excused for thinking so. When it's done, it should look something like this. At least, I hope so.

Once again I'm using scraps from my stash to make up items for a Christmas Craft show. The grey is leftover from some fingerless gloves I made a couple of years ago. The white and blue yarns were bought by the bag at a yarn sale in 2011, specifically with the intention of Christmas crafting. And the eyelash yarn came into my possession as part of a prize lot from an online contest put together by another craft blogger. Looks like this is the year that I really make some progress working through my stash!

By the end of this week I hope to know two things: whether I can produce a little gnome as cute as those shown on the pattern photo, and, whether it's easy enough to make multiples gnomes feasible. Maybe I'll see you on Friday with those answers? That's my goal!

It's Work-in-Progress Wednesday; I hope to see you over at Tami's Amis to check out what the rest of the gang has been up to!

There can never be too many gnomes for me! And what an excellent use for the fuzzy eyelash yarn:) Through you, it has found its higher calling.

Every year mom and I say we are going to make a gnome - and we never do!

I would never have guessed what it was going to be. I love gnomes, if they are easy I might have to make some for my cubicle!

LOL! I love how you explained that wasn't a bowling pin. This is going to be such a fun project. What a cute gnome and what a great way to use eyelash yarn.
