Arrival in Florida . . .
(Pattern is by Raynor Gellatli and can be found on her blog Knitted Toy Box or on Ravelry here. I made some major changes to the pattern as Raynor knit the gnome flat and in two pieces and sewed the back seam and the bottom on. Since I don't do seams if there is any way to avoid them, I knit my gnome in the round and in one piece.)

We had a little party this afternoon but no cake yet. She loved all the gifts and send her thanks and squeals to you. Please notice the paper I wrapped the teapot in.
The blue scarf I knit from angora/merino handspun which should keep her warm.
She loved the card calendar and the tea set. I loved the tea set too!
All in all, it has been a good day so far! Tomorrow you get to see what crafting is going on, and there is quite a bit of it!

First, Dena sent me the traveling gnome and we all know they like to
travel. Then it decided to snow on Christmas for the first time since
1842! All that was just too much for us, so we are heading south
(further south than we already are) to look for some relaxation and
hopefully warmer weather!
