And they're off!

Finally, Gnorm & Gnuman the knitting gnomes have been sent on their way. Finishing up Gnuman took everything I had in me, but he turned out so cute!
So, this morning they started scheming...
Saying Goodby
They opened up the Knitter's Travel Guide to try and decided where they should stop first.
Planning their stops
So Where will they stop first? Swappers keep an eye on your mailbox. Gnorm & Gnuman have packed their bags, jumped on a plane & should be arriving at their first stops by Tuesday!
Gnuman Packing Up

Lets do a quick review, what to do once your Gnome arrives.
~Blog! Say a quick thank you to last gnome host and of course share your cool goodies with us.
~Tour! Take Gnorm or Gnuman out for a day on the town. Show them (and us) what's cool about where you live. This could be local landmarks, local yarn shops, your work or home...
~Blog again... Post photos over at our flickr page. Then Gnorm or Gnuman write up a blog post telling us about the tour.
~Pack him up! Place a photo or post card in the photo album & place the album and the gnome back in his box. Then add in the goodies for the next stop.
~Ship him out! Ship him onto his next stop (either UPS or Priority mail). If you're shipping within the US please get delivery confirmation and email me the tracking info. At the end of the swap I'll have a little contest for those of you who send that info to me (if you're shipping internationally just send me an email to let me know the box is shipped).

Thanks & Let the Fun Begin!!!

Those guys are too darn cute! Wow!

Did you use a pattern for them? If so, where is it from?

Oh, I MUST knit some gnomes. Did you have a pattern, or is this just native brilliance?? Let me know at elizabeth [dot] a [dot] durand @ gmail [dot] com. Thanks!

Thanks so much for organizing all of this and starting it off. Gnorm and Gnuman are simply adorable!

I have to admit that packages with gifts for my swap pal have already arrived and I can hardly wait for my turn to host one of these charming gentlemen.
