Year of the Dragon - New amigurumi pattern in process!!

(Again I apologize for posting so late my last posts, my camera battery failed and I had to go editing the pending posts yesterday and today. Thank you for your understanding. For me it was really hard not to publish the posts, only because I haven't the images ready.)

Happy day 22!

Last days I've been seeing on blogs and facebook, that the whole handcraft community celebrates the Chinese New Year, with objects of all kinds, but especially dragons! This year is the Year of the Dragon, and I got the inspiration to make a new amigurumi. But I must admit that I'm having a lot of work to get the pattern. I usually start by the nose when I make animugurumis (animal amigurumis), that is what gives more personality to each toy. And I have taken several tests to find the final form, as I wanted to lower the nose, the belly of the dragon started and then to continue it throughout the body, as in the traditional Chinese dragons drawings I found on internet . What do you think? Do you like the deffinitive muzzle design? I hope to end it tomorrow, to write the pattern, and share it with you!
