Sometimes you just have to crochet a gnome

After 4 days of a stomach virus waging war on my family, I finally feel capable of wielding a crochet hook.  I needed something quick, cute and easy enough for my frazzled brain to muddle through.   The gnome fit the bill perfectly. I love him.  I just don't know what to do with him - make him my mascot or send him around the world to take pics with my friend?

His eyes are a bit big, but it seems all the craft stores in the area have had a run on 6mm safety eyes.   It seems the amigurumi trend has kicked up before the retailers could keep up with details like tiny black eyeballs.  I think I am going to have to find an online source and stock up.
