Remember when I first posted the Scrappy Gnome Hat pattern? In that post I said, “It also knits up extremely quick. Like, need a gift for tomorrow? This is the way to go, quick.” Well, over the weekend I got to put that theory to the test when at bedtime, the night before a 7th birthday party for a dear little friend of the family, my children informed me (in something of a panic) that all of their well thought out gifts had somehow gone all wrong. Some things had lost parts, others had just not come together properly, next to nothing was actually done and ready for gifting (with the exception of a potholder from Galen of course, and what 7 year old doesn’t just dream of his very on potholder?). It was at this point that they asked if I could please make something for him. I gave them a couple of options and they thought he would like the gnome hat.
After consulting on the colors, they went to bed and 4 regularly interrupted hours later, the gnome hat was complete. Mission accomplished.
