My brother came down to visit yesterday morning, and while we were visiting I managed to crank out nine gnomes!

Saturday was spent finishing gnomes that I had cranked out earlier in the week.
Dave didn't care for this one. I think he's adorable! I do need to play around with his beard a little, though.
Green is not a typical color for a beard, but I figure there must be some gnomes somewhere that have gotten a bit mossy from spending so much time outside.
I may have to go buy another skein of white yarn. It's perfect for Santa beards.

I feel like I'm in Santa mode since I've now made several gnomes with white beards!
This one is my favorite so far. I love the red and purple together. He went to a friend who has been home sick this week. She loves it. I may have to make another for myself!

Christmas colors ruled today... no pinks or purples or shades of green and red today.
Daughter Carol requested a loaf of bread for her AP Euro class today. They're studying the French Revolution. She asked if I would make French bread, but I put my bread book someplace safe for Thanksgiving. There wasn't time to look for it and get the bread made, so plain bread it is. I think the kids will be okay with that. After all, it's free food for them!

Yesterday was very busy with a doctor appointment and work, but I still managed to crank out some gnomes in the morning and put a couple together in the afternoon and evening.
Dave said that he doesn't like the scruffy look, so these two were carefully groomed. The kids at school have told me that I should give one with a grey beard ponytail to one of our p.e. teachers. He just might get one!
It's kind of fun making the braided beards, but I still haven't perfected my technique.
I have four more gnomes cranked and ready for finishing. There are so many people I'd like to give them to this year!

We had a full house for Thanksgiving. All four of our daughters and their families were here for a total of 18.
