Aaaaahhh! I want one! Please tell me you're going to be making a tute or putting a pattern on Etsy or something. I have that knitting fabric in white in my stash waiting to be made into something wonderful. I was planning a knitting bag but I have enought to make something else, too. This would be a perfect accessory!

I was JUST complaining about the yarn getting tangled whenever it goes in my bag...this would so rock to have!

Holy shmoly! I'm totally bowled over by all the love! Let me see if I can answer some of these questions. 

Fabric: the gnomes, the wood, and the knitting fabric were found on amazon, sold by fabric.com. I know the gnomes and wood are from Michael Miller, but I don't remember if the knitting fabric is too. 

Weighted to keep it on tables: I gave that a lot of thought, actually, but ruled it out since it'll mostly be hanging on a wrist or attached to a chair arm.  Plus, a ball of yarn inside gives it enough weight that it wouldn't fall off a table very easily.  But go for it, if it would work for you! Smiley

Tutorial: I'm still ironing out the kinks myself (sewing jokes! I slay me!). Plus, I'm making up a bunch of these to put on my etsy site (am I allowed to say that?), although I've been wondering if I should sell the pattern instead.  Lots and lots to think about on that. 

If you guys have any questions though, I'm more than happy to share knowledge (such as it is! Lol) and I can't tell you how good it makes me feel that you love them so much. Smiley I do too! I want a million of them!

I've got time to test if you need a tester Wink
And I believe I've probably got everything needed - included magnetic snaps Smiley
They are just adorable... really really adorable.  You really should consider selling the pattern if you don't post it for free.  People will be duplicating it soon no matter what if you know what I mean.

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

Great idea!  Love the gnome pattern!!   Grin

I like bacon, gnomes, and squirrels.
Not necessarily in that order.

I would love to see a pattern either way and I would def. not mind paying for a nice pattern pdf on etsy. Smiley You deserve it, this is awesome.

Fabric on Amazon? This I have to see for myself. Thanks for the info. Cheesy

This is the cutest and best thing I've seen. I'm always looking for a way to keep my yarn from rolling around or from the cat playing while I'm crocheting. My mom belongs to a knitting group at the library and I'm sure the ladies would go nuts over these. I'd also love to purchase a pattern.
