Thanks so much guys for all the nice compliments!! I'm blushing behind my knitting needles here Grin Ah especially the comment about my style kimski, ahh that really made me turn as red as the gnome's shirt.. hehehe.. anyway Roll Eyes

Oh my gosh that donut so IS Chief Wiggum!! Ahh yesssss I so didn't think of that. Oh man why didn't I think to make a box earlier.. d'oh! Mmm donuuuuts...
And the gnome, oh man it was hard to give him up I love him. But now I want a gnome army!! Muahaha to steal yarn for me.. or better yet, to steal sheepies for my shaving and wool gathering pleasure.. hmm...

Anyway, the gnome-modifications. Let's see.. I don't have him on me, just that picture to remember by. Well, I used this pattern (as you know Shotgun-Bettie):
but basically two rows after connected the legs, I switched to the red yarn and did the arms in that as well. That line of red is just the garter stitch color change. For the hat, I did the decreases on both sides of every garter row. It came out pope-hat looking at first, but it worked when I sewed it up. The beard I used boucle yarn and connected it w/ a crochet hook and just basically embroidered 3 straight lines for the face.
I hope that helps and I wanna see any other gnomes!! Yay gnome liberation Cheesy
