Knitted Alien Autopsy by Emily Stoneking
The mushrooms in this neck of the woods are not poisonous, simply knitted. A case of yarn bombing by Leigh Martin.
Descreet yarn-bombin is just as beautiful as the big bombastic one.

A lovely Tumbl-user, fuckthisimgoingto221b, reminded me that I never actually updated my “Song of the Lonely Mountains” knitting chart. So here it is!
I did end up changing it quite a bit (the original 45 stitches were just too thick). I finished knitting it when there was still lots of snow on the ground (after many mistakes with double-knitting), and have been wearing the thing for a few lovely months.
I made it with Illimani’s baby alpaca (I needed about 1.5 skeins in each colour), in colours inspired by Tolkien’s original illustration, and it is THE SOFTEST thing ever!
With the leftover yarn, I made a headband (a miniature version of this) that says To dungeons deep and caverns old. I knitted that one without making a chart (I can certainly make one, if there are any requests—it just takes some time and it’s pointless for me to do unless someone wants it. Just message me if you do!)
If anyone actually knits this, please please send me your WIP and/or finished pics! I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE THEM! That would make me so happy :3
I HAVE to make this!!!
