I seem to have been crocheting constantly for the last few months, but haven't got round to posting anything on here. It didn't help with the weather getting so dull & making it hard to photograph things. Anyway, here are some of the things I've made recently.

This creature is a Snowy Wood Spirit. These gentle, shy spirits are almost invisible in a snowy wood. They help small woodland creatures and plants to survive the winter. Now adopted by my younger son.





Here we have an Evergreen Tree Troll. These woodland creatures often 'stowaway' on cut Christmas trees, and find their way into our homes. They poke presents and eat chocolate decorations, but they also look after the tree and make it last longer. My older boy nabbed this one.







Back in the autumn I was inspired by all the lovely conkers and chestnuts and their cases, so I made these:



Then my 5 year old decided that he really needed a red bat, so he did some drawings and this is what we ended up with together:



And finally, here's a little monkey I made, trying to build up my stock for the Shop the Swap. I didn't make enough things, so I'll have to try to join in again next year.

Ack, amazing work as usual Angry Angel!!  I can see why your sons nabbed the Snowy Wood Spirit and the Evergreen Tree Troll.  They are especially wonderful!! 
Yay!  I'm glad you're thinking of coming back to STS next year.  We've been missing you!
