Here's the fly I made for a german knitting contest.
We had to knit some secret wool, which was sent to us
in an envelope. Design was completely free, but you
weren't allowed to knit something wearable.
You could add 50g of other things (yarn or other). This was good... ;-)
Thingy consists of:
turquoise yarn (from the bag - weight doesn't count)
black mohair for the wings (10 g)
wire for the wings (3 g)
straws for the legs (6 g)
a tea ball (24 g)
a balloon for grown-ups (it fills the corpus) (3 g)
You can see all knitted things there:http://anleitungen.bestrickendes.de/index.php?option=com_zoom&Itemid=164&catid=2
Thank you for looking!
How big it is:
proboscis ~ 6 inches
proboscis-diameter (at the bottom) ~ 1,25 inches
wingspread ~ 12 inches
corpus with head ~ 8 inches
legs ~ 6 inchesThank you very, very much for your comments! This makes me soooo happy! Yay!
Two new fly-pics:
Wings aren't asymmetric, SHE's just moving...By the way: what's the (not crafty) meaning of the idiom "running with scissors"? Thanx...I still can't believe, but I'm the winner of the contest!!! Yay!!!
