Surely the most glam version of the 4th Doctor's scarf ever! Love it! Proportionally, it must be at least as long as the original.

That's beautiful! I was given a copy of the Silmarillion with that cover when I was quite young, and I liked Tolkien's designs even before I read it. I've only read it once, but I really liked it, I must get round to reading it again.

It's been far too long since I posted anything on Craftster, so I thought I'd better try and catch up with some of the things I've made.

Here are some mini amigurumi I made, a selection of little creatures including snails, beetles, ladybirds (ladybugs), spiders, and baby frogs, all between 1.5" and 2.5" long. I initially designed most of these when I was making lots of tiny things to sell at my sons' school bazaar, then I worked on the designs and came up with lots of variations. I also made a little playmat for the creatures, with a toadstool in the middle and a hollow log for them to play in.

These are the baby frogs, it's fun to make lots of these, and they enjoy playing in the hollow log.

I love snails - I don't even mind that they're slimy, but these are a non-slimy alternative.

The spider's legs are stiff enough for them to stand up nicely. I had fun playing with stitches to make interesting designs on their backs, or using variegated yarns.

I made two types of beetle, an oval-shaped one and a round ladybird/ladybug. As you can see, they fit quite well in a matchbox.

I hope you like all my mini creatures, I certainly had fun making them all.
