With St Patrick’s Day coming up I felt that I really had to get little Wheelan O’Wool the Leprechaun tested and ready for release.
You may remember that at the end of last year I entered the Amigurumi.net fantasy character competition for which I designed three little characters. Gnorman the Gnome (the pattern of which is now available and you can read more about here) Gene the Genie and Wheelan.
He’s short, he’s green, his rosy cheeks are a sight to be seen!
Whelan is a feisty little fellow and not one to shy away from partaking in a little mischief! He spends his time mending the shoes of the fairy folk and hiding his earnings in a big pot at the end of the rainbow.
Whelan is well known for his love of Irish Poitín and he loves to share the craic with his cousin Gnorman every fortnight when he comes calling.
So if you want to hook up your own little lucky mascot then why not make yourself a little Wheelan O’ Wool the Leprechaun.
And what about the other characters? Well it’s just Gene the Genie to go and I’ll be working on him next – so watch this space!
