I made 'Portrait of a Boyfriend as a Kingfisher' for 'Love is Awesome'. He is made in crochet with single ply water coloured linen on 0.6mm hook. He is 13cm tall. I put him in a frame but I shouldn't have done really. He is squashed in there. I might sew him onto something and give him a bit more freedom. It was really difficult to get a kingfisher blue, as blue as a kingfisher, and as blue as the man I was portraying. Even with series 4, the most expensive paint.
