This is an imp, not a devilish one, but a little nature sprite that I found hiding in my garden. I'm hoping he'll keep the pests away from my plants, but he's as likely to eat my tomatoes before I get to them!



I made this little guy on a whim the other day. I had an urge to make a simple imp-like creature, so I scribbled a quick sketch then tried to make him look like it. I wasn't entirely happy with him until I added the details - the ears, the horns, the tail and the ruff round his neck.







He's made with acrylic yarn, apart from his fur which is an alpaca mix and which has been brushed to make it fuzzy.

I hope this isn't too late, I tried to work out the equivalent time here in the UK but I wasn't sure about the summer variations.
