All Work, Gnome Play
English + German + Italian + French
Gnorwen loves working at the Gnice Cream Shoppe in the Gnorthern Ranges National Park. The park is famous for its whitewater rivers, the shop is famous for its sundaes, and Gnorwen is famous for being cold all the time working around the freezers. Tourists love to get their picture taken with her after rafting expeditions.
This gnome features a heap of fun and an avalanche of video tutorials. She’s mostly simple knitting with a few twists to make her special.
