Wiley the Wisp

Hello lovely readers!

This year I have decided to participate more in events. I have been to two conferences for work, I am going to one of the biggest pop culture conventions next weekend, I’ve decided to join NaNoWriMo (more on that on Wednesday) and then I have also decided to join an amigurumi contest! Pfiou!

Some of you who love amigurumi will probably know that every year, amigurumipatterns.net organises a contest for amigurumi design, and this year I have decided to take the plunge. This year’s theme is Fantasy Creatures, here is what the sites says about the contest

Whip out your wands (I mean, hooks): this year’s design contest will conjure up the most amazing Fantasy Creatures! Fascinating fairies, unique unicorns, dramatic dragons, mesmerizing mermaids and many more from all corners of your imagination can compete to see who’s the most magical of them all, and gets to spirit away the amazing prize basket!

Doesn’t this sound super exciting? There are a lot of mermaids and unicorns in the designs already (which you can check out here), so I though I would do something different. I though about what kind of creature I could make and came up with a Will’O’Wisp. You may have noticed but I absolutely adore Halloween, and one of my favourite stories is the one of Jack’O’Lantern, or Will’O’Wisp. This is how mine turned out.

I named my wisp Wiley and he has been entered into the contest! He will also be part of my Halloween decorations this year.

I am planning on making at least another amigurumi to enter, as the submissions end on November 30th. The voting will take place from December 1st to December 8th, and I’m pretty excited and nervous at the same time, I hope that people will like Wiley as much as I do!

Have a wonderful week!

    Soooo cute, Emma. I admire your talent and creativity. I could do felt or fabric, but no idea how I’d crochet a critter “freestyle” that actually looked like something.
    Good luck.
    And good luck with the novel. I get too distracted to write one in a month. I’d need to swear off all other projects, which I need to do anyway if I’m ever going to finish mine. (sigh)

  6. I love him! So cute. ๐Ÿ™‚ And now I need to go take a look. The first thing I thought of was making a mermaid and then you said there are a lot of mermaids. LOL Now I have to rethink it but I think I would love entering something like this.
