Mikkael is born


After some messing around and trying around and looking around, i got inspired by an sweet little dragon, and i thought, cool this one I am going to try.

So i got my wool and my needles and the picture and started off with needling a little head …. here you can see the outcome :


cute … isn’t he ? :D
So the next thing i started was the body … 4 numbers to big for the head … but ok, the head can be made bigger - not really a problem, is it ? :D
Next i made legs, and failed terrible.
What followed was a body, some leg pieces and a head in a box and a mighty angry me in front of the pc.

Next day came along and i was all up to new testing's.
But by then i thought … he doesn’t really look like a dragon, does he …. he much more looks like a turtle. So i had to go to the internet and search for turtle pictures.

Lots of lovely turtle pictures, but not really any i wanted to make, i wanted it to look cute and baby like.
That was when my man - Jörg - told me to make it a bit like a ninja turtle.

Oh boy, i thought … means i have to cover the whole head green … yuck.

But ok…. the idea wasn’t all that bad, so off i want with poking the wool like mad … so concentrated on poking again, that i completely forgot to take pictures of the work in progress …. i am sorry, just the finished baby is here …

HERE you find the link to the pictures and description of : MIKKAEL !! :D


isn’t he cute ? :D
