All at once there was a scraping noise and the egg split open. The baby dragon flopped onto the table. It wasn't exactly pretty; Harry thought it looked like a crumpled, black umbrella. Its spiny wings were huge compared to its skinny jet body, it had a long snout with wide nostrils, the stubs of horns and bulging, orange eyes.

Description: I chose black viscose fibre for this yarn, as it is shinier than wool and much less fuzzy. It seemed a good choice for the jet black, leathery dragon and has a nice sheen to it. I added a dragon charm, and some large-ish orange glass beads to represent the eyes.
Fibre Types: viscose
Add-Ins: black thread, orange beads (matte with silver core), dragon charm
