Life should not be a journey to the grave with the goal to arrive safe and sound in an attractive and well preserved body but rather skit in sideways, Chardonnay in one and Strawberries in the other hand, the body completely wrecked and used and at the same time cheering WOW, what a ride

Thank you so much for all the nice comments!

The fuzzy yarn I used for the Snowy Wood spirit was the sort I think you'd call eyelash (that's what it looks like, anyway.) I usually work with one fuzzy yarn and one, thin, ordinary one of a smilar colour - it makes it easier to see what you're doing. I work inside out for the fuzzy bits too, because fuzziness always ends up on the inside when you work in the round. The face is just crocheted separately then sewn on. No real pattern, because spirits can be any shape you like!

The toes on the troll are done with popcorn stitch or dc bobbles, I can't remember which now. I usually try both to see which looks best - popcorn sticks out more. Do an sc between each stitch to make them stand out more.

Angry Angel, you've done it again.  I love the Snowy Wood Spirit and the Evergreen Troll.  Your kids are so lucky to have your creative imagination around, and I love that you collaborated on the red bat.  I made your Totoro earlier this year to give to a friend's toddler and he adores it.  Your Snowy Wood Spirit and Evergreen Troll would inspire Hayao Miyazaki himself.  Thanks so much for posting them!  I appreciate the tip about crocheting the eyelash yarn with another yarn to see it better.  Thanks again!
