What on earth does this have to do with what I am crocheting? Or are you already there?
Using a pattern from Lucy Ravenscar's Etsy store and a beautiful metallic gold yarn, I am crocheting her Dragonet pattern to crochet a gold Queen Fire Lizard. Clara, of the Etsy store 6060 hand-painted special eyes for the Fire Lizards. And they are beautiful, perfect for them!
When the first (I am making two) of the dragons is finished I will post photos of her. But until then, here is Lucy Ravenscar's photo from her Etsy store - - -
I had to put off starting work on them last month, due to an emergency appendectomy. My appendix was not far from bursting, and had "oozed" a bit. I was very lucky to have gotten in when I did, and to have great doctors and nurses. They "mopped up" well before closing, then pumped me full of 3 types of antibiotics for four days. So now, except for a sore hand where the last IV was, and still getting tired a bit too quickly, I'm "all better now" as our kids used to say.
So now, after making hamsters by the dozens, I've now moved onward and upward to crocheting beautiful golden Dragons~ ~ ~
