Crocheted Gnome and The Awesome Barrettes!

First of all, I didn't make these...but I still had to share because I've never seen any like them and they're so stinkin' cute! Little fruity barrettes and they were only $1 at one of our local grocery stores in the $1 section. Had to get them. You understand. :)

And showing off this little gnome made with scrap yarns. His hat has a little twist at the top (I just didn't stuff all the way to the tip, so it'd be easier to fold over a bit). And the nose...was an accident!! I was attaching the face yarn color to the hat to begin working on the face rounds and accidentally left the knot on the wrong side. But it turned out to be a glad mistake because now he has a nose!! I might have to do them all like that now. :) I'm not sure why he looks a little bit angry...maybe because his hat is crooked? He'll just have to get over it. :D

I love those barrettes, and such a good deal! I think this gnome is my favorite. For some reason, he reminds me of the King in the neighborhood of make-believe on Mr. Rogers. :) I hope that's not offensive, but that's the first thing I thought of when I saw him just now.

Not offensive at all!! :) I know exactly who you're talking about and now that you've said it, I have to agree some :D :D
