Knit gnome and Flute gnome
January 19, 2016 4:11am CST
Finally, I have completed the knit gnome and flute gnome. I think I spent two hours to make the flute gnome this morning. Glad that I managed to finish them, and I am going to present them to my son this week. I have told the knitting story to my son, and I'll just bring out the knit gnome to remind him for knitting practice. I'll tell a story about the flute, then I'll present this flute gnome to him, and also for his future flute practice as well. Hope these two gnomes will add some fun and also remind my son to practice knitting and flute playing. The knit gnome is holding the toothpicks with a small knitted piece that I made two days ago.

@iamshane487 I was not an early riser and I liked to sleep late. But, I found that I can actually have more personal time if I wake up early and my health becomes better, hence I just have to do what is good for me. In order to have more personal time, I just have to wake up early.

Thanks. Yes, I hope so - motivate my son to practice. I am planning to knit a doll and crochet a snuggle for my baby #3, but have not started yet, as I am still working on my elder son's gifts as his birthday is in Feb. I am not knitting any clothes, as it's not so suitable for our weather here. I knitted a newborn hat and booties for my younger daughter before she was born, and I think my baby #3 can still use those.

Yes, he learned finger knitting last year. It's recommended to learn finger knitting in kindergarten, knitting in grade 1 and crocheting in grade 3. Actually this is why I learned all these handwork skills in these few years, because I'd like to teach my children.
