Finished Gnome

The last clue of the mystery knit along came out today and I finished the gnome!


Surprise! It's a girl gnome - apparently all gnomes have beards, although this one is a leaf, and she has long braids. It was lots of fun to make. She is 12" to the top of the leaf on her hat. The pattern is Gnome MKAL by Sarah Schira - she is planning another mystery gnome in the fall.


I finished a skein of yarn. This one is from a very coarse section of a raw fleece. I thought it would be perfect for a weaving project. It is about 84g and 200m.

Since there isn't much crafting going on around here, I thought I would share a couple of photos of what else I was up to this past week.


I scraped stipple off the ceiling! Luckily it had never been painted, so came off relatively easy.


It is just really messy/dusty. Amazing how much stuff was up there.


The walls and ceiling are being patched where walls were removed (a little 'railing' was left where the stairs to the basement are). We have opened up the area where the kitchen, living room and dining room are.


Something I learned from Instagram this week was how to peel a mango with the edge of a glass - it works so well.

The snow is really starting to melt,


and geese are migrating! Spring is here!

All the best!♥︎
