Now is time to meet our newest Gnome and hear about how amazing she is!
Gnocchi is pretty pleased to feature in Season 3 of the hit Gnetflix cooking show, “It’s a Chef’s Life.” If you’ve seen the show, you’ll already know that instead of her famous gnocchi recipe inspiring her nickname, it started in childhood because of her nose (gnose?). You’ll also know that she’s very opinionated about the way that spices are sprinkled at the edge of a plate.
Gnocchi features stranded colourwork – a wonderful way to add details to a gnome. It’s like sketching or doodling, and I had so much fun coming up with the patterns. (By the way, if you’ve seen Gnome is Where You Hang Your Hat, this gnome has less colourwork than that one.)
Gnomes are wonderful places to practice colourwork. If your floats are a little wonky, well, wonkiness is gnominess. The name of this pattern is official permission to get things a bit wrong while you work on this skill!
