E is for Eyes
Eyes have always been a favorite image of mine (as you can tell from the title of the blog). I’ve already geeked out about the Beholder, a D&D monster who is made of eyes. Three years ago I wrote a post about people finding this blog by searching for “crochet beholder”. I admitted that there wasn’t any such pattern here, but I linked three which I’d found on Ravelry. This seems like a good time to expand and update that list:
There are also some lovely knit beholder patterns:
This would make for an amazingly geeky Ravelry queue.
I found the perfect eyes for it. They’re from the Creations by Devlin Etsy shop. They are really lovely.
Right now I’m thinking I’ll use some green Fiberoptic DK for the outer bag (with tentacles) and the Diadem pewter for the inner bag, but that might change once I’m finished with the Belle Greene shawl, depending on how much of the Atomic Limon I have left over.
