We didn't come home with a gnome but we do have a troll. The decision was hard-there were many good ones.
Getting up that early took a toll on me. We got home and I had an afternoon nap. A nap that lasted four hours. I guess I was a little bit behind on my sleep.
Sand and Sea from Coastal Knits

I won't put in on the website until the book arrives but you can contact me to hold a copy for you. I don't know what I will do once I have shown all the pictures. They are great and make the blog look very pretty.
