06/01/10 Photo update!

Hey guys, I wanted to give the Kodamas a proper photo session, so I took them over to a Japanese Garden for their photo shoot!  Enjoy.

You can check out more of the photo shoot and in larger resolutions here:


Hey guys, I had so much fun playing around with this Glow in the Dark yarn.  I knew I wanted to make something special for it and I thought the Kodamas from Princess Mononoke would be perfect for it!  The yarn I used is called Nightlights, and it really does glow in the dark!  It's made from nylon.  The yarn strand itself was a little too skinny for me, so I double stranded it and then it was perfect for amigurumi-making!  Here's some pics of the Kodamas. I created 2 different versions - 1 sitting and 1 standing.  Standing one kinda reminds me of an alien.  The last pic you see is of it glowing in the dark.  Wish I could get a better in the dark picture.  

I also uploaded a video on you tube so you can see the ami and yarn in action.

Oh yes, and I'm also including a link of the free pattern.  I think these Kodamas all would like to have some more trees to dwell in ^^

The fact that you made them with glow in the dark yarn makes them perfect! Great job.

These are so cool, especially with the glow-in-the-dark yarn. I really like the sitting down ones, and I love the way you've posed them outside.

Direct quote after showing these to my bf:

"THESE ARE SO F***ING CREEPY!!! I want 15 of them."

I think he likes them as much as I do. I'm definitely trying out your pattern, these are great!

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

I love them!  I saw them on Ravelry and decided I have to find some glow in the dark yarn here in the UK so I can make a few for me and a friend Smiley

So cute!! I have been meaning to make a kodama for a long time but haven't gotten around to it. I have some blue glow in the dark yarn that I used to crochet a turtle shell for my turtle! It's neat stuff.

OMGosh! I LOVE Spirited Away and I sqeeee'd a bit when I saw the thumbnail, but they're GLOW IN THE DARK??  How awesome is that??

They are wonderful!  I think I would take a million pictures of these posed around!  Cheesy
