If you are, like myself, a bit of a crafty crafter (and I know many Tolkienites are) then have a gander at this recent addition to Instructables. User ChrysN has put together what at first seems a friendly lil’ crocheted version of Smaug, until you LOOK INTO ITS GLOWING EYES and see the FIREY SMOKE issuing from its snout. Stand back hobbits and dwarves alike – this is some terrifying fiber art!

Author: Oloriel From time out of mind, Oloriel has been typing away in her little apartment, cats at her feet, hoping to reach out to other fantasy lovers by way of folkandfairy.com. Her discovery of Tolkien as a young adult awakened her long-dormant love of the otherworldly, and now she sees magic everywhere.Oloriel has a degree in writing, which she put to work during a three-year stint in vanity publishing – an experience not unlike purgatory and very much like having to read 20 bad books each week – which she prefers not to talk about. To renew herself, she knits, naps, reads, prays, writes, walks in the woods, and eats too many cookies.
