Amigurumi Link

I am so happy with little guy! It’s probably the most fiddly project I’ve undertaken in terms of all the shaping, but it actually only took me 3 days to complete because he’s quite small at only 6” tall. I used a 2.5m hook and worsted weight cotton yarn. (Yes I’m a glutton for punishment and yes my fingers hurt, but he looks so cute!) I used this great, easy to follow free pattern here: . I kind of freestyles to get the hair how I wanted it and added some extra detailing on the belt. I shall be sad to part with him, when he goes to his new home!

Neil Dawsons “Horizons” Mighty Optical Illusions

Neil Dawson creates eye-popping sculptures. He has produced many throughout New Zealand, Australia, Asia and the UK, and I have to admit that there’s a few I still can’t wrap my mind around. No matter how you look at them, your eyes and brain will trick you into believing that what you’re looking at is a simple drawing from a cartoon. Some of the sculptures are on land, while some others are hung in mid air.
