lochness lovers by MartianRaindrop42 lochness lovers by MartianRaindrop42
my first and my second nessies.these two are crochet with a solid cool grey yarn and than their colors and markings were added with sharpie permanent markers.which is something that i had never tried before. it was fun to do them that way! so far the color has resisted fading pretty well.this picture of them was taken almost two -three months after their completion. the one on the left is called "fatboy" and he was the first one i made,the one on the right is his girlfriend called "slindar"

Thank you! I wanted very specific markings that yarn alone would not accomplish, so I used sharpie pens not knowing how they would hold up over time. and now that these are about 2 years old I can say that I am very happy with how well the color from those pens has held up. they are a bit dusty from being on a shelf but the colors are still strong.
