I don't know what it is about gnomes, but I like them a lot. They are just so darned cute. I've knitted one in the past, with a more planned for sometime in the not-too-distant future. Now, on opening today's Advent Box, I can see that I'll be needle felting a pair of gnomes. I've done a bit of needle felting in the past, but not much. I'm looking forward to this project, although I won't get to it for a while. The kit has everything I'll need: the yarn, needle and a foam pad. I just hope that mine will turn out as good as the ones in the pattern photo.
