Fairy Garden Crochet-A-Long so far

On Facebook Mad Crochet Scientist started a Crochet-A-Long for a Fairy Garden. As I never had participated in a CAL, I was very excited to do my first one!

The first challenge was “trees”. There were some very nice trees on Mad’s blog: http://madcrochetlab.com/mad-cal-fairy-theme/

My trees and a mushroom I made before:

The second week the theme was “Furniture and Furry Friends”. First there was some meadow to make. I used fluffy and cotton for this, very boring to make 😉 An extra tree was a nice distraction. This one is made in black with sparkling thread, a real fairy tree!

As fan of the movie Labyrinth, I crocheted the Worm (as seen in a previous post), so he could be an extra in the garden as Furry Friend 🙂 I wanted to make a bridge, but then you need a brook… And water comes in the brook through a waterfall…. So, I made a brook and a waterfall and a bridge. But you need to get on the bridge by a path. That became the Yellow Brick Path. And because it’s actually the Troll Bridge, I had to make a Troll, lurking in the dark… His head and right hand are just visible.

These had to go in the container I have reserved for the project, which is meant to be a kind of lamp:

The Worm now has find a new home on and in the tree trunk.

Inspired by the movie Brave in a matter of minutes some will-o’-the-wisps were born:

Here’s the final result, so far, without any fairies, although there are some fairy lights to lure them:

Scarf

Also not an amigurumi, but I wanted to make my own version of the Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf by Moogly
Here is the result:

The yarn I used was a leftover over of Rio (Lammy, the green/blue/white) and about 1.5 skeins of Scheepjes Larra Batik 7501 S2 (light and dark green and light and dark blue). Both yarns used are cotton, hook 2.5.

The pattern can be found at http://www.mooglyblog.com/artfully-simple-infinity-scarf.

Two gifts

Gecko bookmark Skull pot-holder

They’re not really amigurumis, but I liked making them, so they surely have the fifth taste!

I have a friend who still reads real books, and he loves geckos. So I made him one to use as bookmark in his real books.

They also painted their kitchen grey and yellow and because he not only likes geckos, but skulls and skeletons too, I made them two pot-holders for the newly painted kitchen.
