Hobbits, Dwarfs, Dragons and more in yarn

This Wednesday I wanted to share the creations of some fabulous artists here.

My post on Lord of the Rings themed knitting patterns has proved to have been one of the most popular of all time here on the Knitter’s Handbook.

Those patterns, however, pale in comparison with the figures created by Denise Salway. Check out Smaug here and be sure to click through to explore the rest of the images on her Flickr stream.

Not knitted, but in my humble opinion even more awesome are the crochet arigurumi by Sammi Resendes. Check out her Flickr stream here. The detail is simply stunning. And guess what? The patterns have been written up and are available, partially free, partially paid. I really wish I was a better crocheter.

You can find the details on ravelry and Geek Central Station.
