Meet Finley. He's a triangle gnome. Despite the simple pattern, I still managed to mess up his hat. I blame the crappy yarn. Regardless, he's here now, and he took me forever to make! I found the pattern during the first Roaming Gnome Swap and decided to make him for the second one, but it was so boring that I just finally finished him last night, and I didn't even take part in the second swap! And I crocheted his body together backwards, so the weird edge effect is on his backside. Well, now I know for next time!

I decided to embroider his eyes on because I can't seem to get safety eyes onto things, even with pliers and tears coming out my eyes, but it also turns out I can't embroider, either! lol. I guess it's google eyes for all my toys from now on Sad
