Baby Gnomes

I found this cute pattern for baby size gnomes at this website.
Could not resist making a few...well 8 actually:) I knit them in 5ply wool on a size 12 (2.75mm) needle. They take very little wool and I had so many colours in my stash I just kept on knitting. After knitting the red one I thought a Santa would be cute so I gave him black boots and mittens and a belt. A beard and a pom pom on his hat finished him off.
I stitched a bell on one gnome's hat then thought that it would not be very baby friendly so put a bell inside the hat before attaching it to their heads. These will probably end up at a charity I donate knitted garments to called k.o.g.o. (knit one give one)
