Shipping off the Diplomats

This has been a busy week of organizing and packing and otherwise getting ready to ship hundreds of gnomes off to Korea for next month’s show at Everyday Mooonday. Here’s what our dining room looks like right now.


I think at least one of those boxes is just holding packing peanuts for other boxes, but I don’t even know anymore. Shipping is stressful!

Of course, among those hundreds of gnomes are hundreds of gnome diplomats that all of you sent in. In preparation for sending them off on their mission of spreading cuteness and happiness to the other side of the globe, we’ve finally tallied them all: Including the lovely gnomes submitted by Chicagoland knitters at YarnCon, we recruited a total of 332 gnomes to travel to Seoul—I am blown away by this number!


To celebrate, I’m selecting two random gnome knitters to get a Personal Happiness Labbit that I picked up at Rotofugi.


There’s no need for suspense, so the winners are… Monica E. and Rosemary S.! I’ll send you each an email for your mailing address.

Full details about the show are coming soon, but first I get to take a weekend off from knitting gnomes, which will be a refreshing break before John and I start getting ready to go to Seoul ourselves!

  1. Yay! I cannot wait to see what the show looks like!
    And I can’t even with the words…..gnome wall hanging?! So freakin amazing! Awesome idea! I would totally have Mochimochi wall hangings in my house!

  2. Yay for the winners!!! I’m just so glad that I sent in my little gnomes!!! Glad to be part of the project! Can’t wait for the next one LOL

  3. Wow, that’s a lot of gnomes. May the packing go well and you all make it to South Korea with ease. Thank you for making your project a group effort.

  4. Yay! So many gnomes! Love it!!! This was such a fun project and I really hope you do something like this again in the future! Have fun in Seoul! :)

  5. I am so amused that my gnome (the black pants and yellow shirt with the sparkly green hat from OR) still looks like he’s doing a dual flip off at the world. In my head he had a really cranky attitude. That’s why he had his tiny bunny friend with him. Haha. Tiny bunny was the guy that would keep him from being too much of a jerk and would smooth over any feathers Mr. Gnome may have ruffled. :D I am so excited to see them all in South Korea!
