Poro: the most adorable creature ever

You know how you always wished for that adorable, fluffy bunny, well, behold the upgrade: the poro!

This creature is around fluff ball that loves sweet cookies. Its white fur coat protects it in the cold winter, and its huge tongue is ready to lick your face. Loyal, loving, the poro can grow a moustache when in contact with Braum, a special champion.

Kayle is beautiful

Isn’t Kayle pretty? She is my favourite League of Legends champion. She is the Judicator, bringing justice where her sister Morgana, brings terror. She is warrior of light, and her values are truth, justice and honesty. A great hero to look up to, no?

And also a great desktop background =P

In these images, Kayle is wearing her shiny golden armor, which is a characteristic of the warrior that she is. Her wings are those of the angel of justice, and they are immensely powerful, allowing her and her heavy gold suit to soar way over her opponents. Here, she is represented in her classic skin, in both the regular and Chinese versions.

Personally, I believe that due to the anime style predominant in Asia, the Chinese skins are more detailed and prettier, but it all depends on the viewer. Some criticize them for they do not represent the essence of the champion, but more of the artistic swaying of the creator, but hey, who can ever complain about the beauty of the lighting in these images?

Kayle may seem menacing, but she definitely has sweet features. From the golden blonde hair to the soft cream wings, there is a certain angelic prestance in her attire. Even though metal-clad, a certain softness permeates thanks to the red scarf she bears, alongside the royal gold and ruby of her armor. And the sparkles don’t really help make her menacing either.

Which one is your favourite? Mine is definitely the last one, the classic Kayle chinese artwork skin. (It probably is obvious since she is my header and avatar too =P)

Little glass cosies

Ideal with my white furniture: the light pink adds a soft feminine touch!

It’s quite funny, for even though I used the same hook (1.5mm) and the same yarn, as well as the same pattern, obviously, for all three cosies, they all have a significant size difference. I guess tension really does play a role in the size and shape of your work!

Something else quite interesting, is that I had thought I was using the same tension, but I think my stress levels increased the tension. The looser bigger one was done while I was on vacations, while the other smaller ones were done during exam period, while I was trying to actually vent off some stress. Who knew the impact was so visible?

crocodile part
ch2 dc in same stitch, ch3 2dc in 3rd dc, ch3, 2dc in 3rd dc, etc. to create 7 spaces, then fill that up to create the crocodile part, I used 5dc for each “ladder bar”. Do two rows of that, making sure to have one wave per space (don’t skip bars)

loops
5ch for each space, I did the first round all around, then reduced of one each time

Adorable pink soutache doily

The light pink yarn makes for an adoooorable doily reminiscing a romantic child’s dresser, no?
