I third the sending Terry a picture. (He knits, you know... so who better to appreciate a masterpiece of crochet.)

I recognized it from the thumbnail...you did an AMAZING job. How big is it altogether? I can't imagine the patience in adding all those little continents. Great work!

I saw it on the front page and was like DISCWORLD!  I love Discworld!  Awesome!  The patience/time it must have taken to make this is astounding.  *rocks!* Smiley

OMG thank you guys! Good to see there are some other Discworld lovers out there!

I don't know how to contact Terry to show it to him, but I've e-mailed his agent, so maybe he'll get to hear about my project. Anyone have a better way for me to contact him? Send me a message - please...

The sizes:
  • Each elephant is 5" long including trunk!
  • The turtle is 11.5" long
  • The disc is 7.5" diameter

Oh and the continents are crocheted right into top surface of the disc - they weren't added on later. I used 4 colours of cotton yarn to make the disc (blue, white, green, tan).

I'm not obsessed. I'm excessively enthusiastic.

I also saw that thumbnail and went "Oh my god!  Discworld!"  This is fantastic, and completely jaw-droppingly well done.

When I saw the thumbnail I thought this was the best table ever. Now I see that it's not actually a table. But it's completely awesome!!!!!
