My Little Dwarves

I know it's not even close to winter (perhaps our unusually chilly summer is to blame) but I couldn't resist making this. Let's just call it an early Halloween costume.

Dwarf Batt;e HelmetHere's one of my dwarves--I think we'll call him Spazzy--with the hat on though the other resident dwarf wanted his turn with it too, complete with battle axe. It's a simple seed-stitch for the helmet and then I used a furry yarn for the beard and braids. Oh, the possibilities for this one.

Now tell me that isn't completely awesome. Yes, awesome. You can find the pattern here at Ravelry.

These really are creative. You can call them How to Train Your Dragon costumes too!

Awesome. Yes. Reminds me of Lord of the Rings.

I won't be surprised if I see some dwarves running around here in AZ this coming October. And to think...you started the trend way up there in Alaska.

Okay, that is really cool! You are so creative.

BTW, my daughter is in India now. She has a 24 train ride to Raxaul (sp?). From what I heard, the team wasn't prepared for the poverty they saw as they walked to their "hotel" when they got there Monday night.
