Nutcracker and Mouse King

My sis-in-law requested this piece and boy oh boy is she lucky I luv her! This was definitely one of the most challenging pieces ever.
I want to make myself a set but that might have to wait until Christmas 2021 :christmas_tree: :santa:

Wow! These are SO awesome! I think your sister is super lucky. These are so cute and so quirky, and so well-made. Thanks for showing us!

These are so cool. My first thought is, “some people have no idea what they are asking for”. LOL! That was a huge ask, but they turned out amazing. She is going to be tickled when she gets these. All the little details. Phenomenal.

6 different colors and at one point i had to decrease while changing colors crocheting in a circle. Had a major hand cramp when that section was done

They are great.

If she can crochet you should ask her for a set for next year :wink:

lol @raury! Turnabout’s fair play, eh? :slight_smile:

These turned out just gorgeous! The colors and details make them look so rich. I love the little crowns on the mice’s (mice’s?? The heck kind of word is that?), um, on the heads of the mice. :crown:

I like @Raury’s idea!

If this isn’t the reason to make stuff for other people I don’t know what is. Not that I want my sis-in-law to cry but seeing her joy made me so over the top happy
