Secretly fond of garden gnomes though I must confess to be, there’s something vaguely disturbing about these little crochet fellows.

You’d almost suspect them of getting up and wandering about in the night, tying knots in yarn, upsetting the tea caddy, teasing the cat…

Mahar Drygoods offers the 6-inch crocheted gnome “from the fertile imagination of Amy Gaines at Purl,” including a classic red-and-white-spotted toadstool and little patch of turf with a cunning flower. They’re made of soft acrylic yarn with plastic safety eyes, felt appliques, stuffed with polyfil and weighted with plastic pellets.

Just keep your eye on the gnomes, that’s all I’m saying.
