Gnome Cuteness!!


Not long ago i came across this awesome tutorial to make a gnome hat for the little one in your life. I could not resist!! Delilah had to have one.


That is why i love crochet. You can make a project like this in no time flat and get some instant crafty satisfaction.


The photo "shoot" went from good, to plain cute, to silly....


...to uh-oh pick her up before she starts crying very quickly.



The tutorial was easy to follow and fast to make. I chose a linen color yarn so that the hat was as neutral as possible. It is meant for a older child but since my kids have huge heads it is not too far off in size for little Delilah.

Mitch says it look like she has the Eiffel tower on her head.

She's so cute, your hat is too, of course. Funny how she smiles all the way until she can't see you anymore, and then she's trying to figure out where everybody went--LOL
