A crocheted toadstool. A fly agaric. I made it on the train on the way up to Northumberland this weekend. It has stayed there, much happier in a rural location. I was looking in my mushroom book last night for ideas of other ones to make as I always go for these fairytale ones. The white spots are part of 'the universal veil' a covering that protects the growing mushroom and which splits as it grows, leaving behind the spots. I have only seen one of these for real once, in Soctland on a walk up the hill from Crieff Hydro. It was quite big and had faded to an orangey brown.
