Today is dragon…

Slight lie there, I genuinely don’t know where the year has gone. However, the tail I am about to tell may end up dragon out a bit as it began a number of years ago…

In the times before the pandemic, three adventurers went in search of wool. The youngest two in the party picked out some sparkly tinsel wool and the elder a maleficent shade of green…for next, they would need to adventure to the lands of dragons…

Maleficent was my 2018 Christmas tree topper. The pattern itself called for fluffy wool for the wings, but for her, I changed it up a bit for a more menacing, less cuddly look. At that time I intended to knit two of the baby dragons listed in the pattern, one for each of my terrors, which was the tinsel wool they picked out that fateful day.

I finally got to them on my knitting list. Yes, I am aware that it has taken nearly 6 years to get to them. So long ago in fact, I forgot what alterations had to be made for Maleficent! To avoid potential sadness, I knitted a test dragon!

As soon as this photo was taken, it was off and gifted. There was a fight with the terrors who both declared it theirs before hand, but I dug out that wool from so long ago and reminded them that they had picked theirs already…

Yeah. Both rejected their choice and went and frolicked in the wool stash instead…really glad I did a test knit and didn’t try and surprise them with the tinsel yarn.

You can see which treasures the adventurers found, deep in the depths of the woolservatory next post, till then, stay safe!

    I appreciate the scale of this post. It really did not drag-on at all!

    I’m sure the terrors will tell quite the tail for how they got their very own dragons! I bet they fought tooth and claw for that one, but I’m sure they love the ones they got instead

    An adorable knit! And we all know the longest quests are the best ones!
