uncommon crochet

I'm participating in an unusual swap with the uncommon crochet group over at Ravelry.

We are to create a creature of bizarrity!

The idea is that we each submit some sketches... which will be passed onto our partner... who will crochet the creature (or their interpretation of it) and send it back to us. There's not many of us participating... maybe only six or seven... but I'm really excited about it.

Sketch submissions were due today, and I found it much harder than I expected. Usually I just make things up as I go along... so it was quite difficult to put ideas onto paper. Plus my sketching skills are pretty limited!

Here are my contributions...

They all have luscious lips, multiple eyes and colourful hairy bits! I think we can safely call them creatures of bizarrity...

I'm excited to see what my partner creates!

I love your sketches! You draw a heckuva lot better than me. :-) I think I'll go check out that group.

Inspired by this idea I have started a Creative Creatures Project over on for our online community, using a variety of different craft skills. Fingers crossed the idea works. On the photo album we have linked back to your blog post.
Kind regards, Faye
