I have finished the gnomes!
Of course, this achievement came with great sufferings. My hands and wrists are painful and I'm waiting out the healing process. I am knitting limitedly and trying to be patient with myself. I have shelved all other holiday knitting and probably will not do it. I have always listened to my body and when it screams rest, I rest. I'm confident that this wrist/hand pain is autoimmune related and so it will go away eventually.
In the mean time, I casted on a little 1x1 rib hat for myself to keep me busy.
Aren't these little gnomes adorable? This time around I used double knitting and sport weight left over wools to create these little wonders.
