Well, sorry it’s been so long since my last post, but first we were moving, and then there wasn’t much I could show you, and then I really wanted to finish my dragon before posting anything. Anyway, here we are! Continue reading

Okay, I haven’t posted in a while, because I’ve been doing a few big projects and there hasn’t been much to show. I’m happy to say that I FINALLY managed to get safety eyes last week! (Yay!) So I can actually make what I want to make!
First off we have a yellow mouse I made with some yarn I got from a swap package! (you may remember me mentioning this swap a while ago) It’s nice and big, I think eight inches or something (?) It’s a girl, by the way, but she doesn’t have a name. Any suggestions?
Anyway, then I made this Amineko for my little sister’s birthday. She found out about it before it was even done, so she ended up getting it early 😀 It’s my fourth Amineko and counting.
And now we have… Toothless! For those of you who don’t know, Toothless is the dragon featured in the How to Train Your Dragon films. He is very awesome, and adorable at the same time. 😀 Of course, there is also a dragon called Toothless in the HTTYD books, but he’s very different from the one in the films.
This is a close up of his tail, with the artificial tail fin Hiccup made for him. (actually, Gobber made this one, but it’s Hiccup’s design so whatever)
So anyway, that’s it for now. Have a nice day!
Sorry didn’t post on Wednesday, I wrote out a long post and then when I clicked Preview, The whole thing was deleted! 😦
But anyway, here are this weeks finished objects:
First we have a baby Vaporeon. I’m having a problem at the moment because I have NO Safety eyes, so pretty much everything has to be sleeping or a Pokémon now.
Here’s another dragon, this one is Gymn, the first dragon to hatch in the Dragon Keeper Chronicles (I told you to read them!) He is a minor healing dragon so he’s green. My brother’s favourite minor dragon is Gymn, so he got this one. He’s used up my last pair of safety eyes (The dragon, not my brother XD)
Now we have a Sailor Whale I made for a CAL on Ravelry. See his closed eyes? That’s because of the lack of safety eyes, but I think he looks severely cute anyway.
Due to my aforesaid lack of Safety eyes, I decided to start making an amigurumi restaurant for my sister. She’s already going bananas for it. So far I’ve made two sets of plates, cups and saucers, and three slices of pizza.
Well, after finally finishing all the stuff I needed to make for the swap, I actually have some finished objects to show you!
First we have Elsa, who you have already seen in the photos that came with the pattern. If you have seen Frozen, you already know she has ice powers.
Then we have some more icy characters, a mother seal and her tiny baby. The mother seal is about 6cm long while her baby measures 5cm long. The baby is blue because it was the lightest weight yarn I had and I wanted him to be absolutely itsy bitsy.
Then we come to the Lightning side of things. In the various imaginary worlds I’ve created, golden dragons are nearly always lightning breathers rather than fire breathers. This dragon, who I made for the Dragon Collection challenge I’m doing on Ravelry, has the job of guarding my page when I’m not reading. This particular book happens to be about dragons, by the way.
Then we have the Pikachu I just finished for my sisters friend. Yes, I said I was going to make a Pichu, but this pattern was so much cuter!!! And she did say Pikachu or Pichu, so that’s okay.
Now I’m going to cheat a bit. This next creature was actually the first thing I made this week-and-a-bit, but I put it last so I could stick to a theme. This is a purple dragon called Metta from the book series ‘the Dragon Keeper Chronicles’. (They’re very good, you must read them sometime. Especially if you like dragons like me) She is a Minor Singing Dragon, so she’s always singing, humming and can even help people to remember the words to songs. Okay, so the plushie obviously can’t do that, but the character does.
But anyway, that’s it for this weeks finished objects!
