there's a troll in the dungeon.....

Or my yard.

Ok, I lied.  There are *two* trolls in my yard

Expect more trolls.  I'm planning on getting a table at a show in the fall, so I'm trying to build an inventory.

I wanted to make something dramatic for Ross.  He likes the Hobbit, so I made him his own Smaug.

    I will admit, this dragon has been the most ambitious crochet project I've done so far.                                                                      
I purchased the pattern from GemCreations and overall I found it to be a pretty good pattern.  I attempted to insert some bendable wire into the wings to give more control over the wing position, but I wasn't able to find a wire that didn't break too easily with manipulation.  I'm going to keep looking for a workable solution, as I don't think this is going to be my last dragon.

Picture all three dragons from Game of Thrones, very dramatic!
