Knit Yourself A Gnome Buddy!

I know when Rae first set up this swap there were a lot of people that asked her where she got the pattern for Gnorm and his buddy Gnuman. I just wanted to let all of you know that there is currently a special issue of the British magazine Simply Knitting, called "The Big Book of Family Knits", on shelves at Barnes and Noble that contains the pattern for these cute little gnomes. It's kind of pricey ($19.99) but there are also a lot of other really nice patterns in here and if you don't regularly buy Simply Knitting, there's quite a few from the regular publication also. So hope this helps all those knitters who are feverishly searching for the pattern! I'm sure Gnorm and Gnuman would love some new friends, so knit on everybody!

I just picked up a copy of this at my local B&N last Thursday. You may be able to order it directly from the publisher: simplyknitting@futurenet.co.uk. Good luck!

Oh--here is the listing (with a photo of the cover) for it on the publisher's subscription website!
