Some knitting done...

Three more gnomes have joined the world. The small middle one is for my husband, and is knit using Knit Picks Fly fishing colourway. Fitting for a guy who fly fishes.
The two larger ones flanking him are potential gifts. We are spending New Years Eve at the cottage with 2 other families up there, and I'm prepared if any gifts get exchanged. We've never spend New Years with them (it's their first year on the lake, and the kids are all around the same age, so we've become good friends over the summer). Never quite sure of gift protocols in this instance, so I am prepared. The gnomes match cottage colour schemes, but if not exchanged, the gnomes will be quite at home in our own cottage.

We are really looking forward to New Years at the cottage - by far our favourite place to spend it - good friends, good food, no traffic, no crazies (well, except ourselves...). Not sure if any other family members will be joining us, right now it looks like it's just us. I'm secretly thrilled with this - it's a family cottage (his family), so alone time is pretty rare. I love 'em, but sometimes, distance is a good thing.
