Marvel Heroes in Middle Earth?

It's been quiet around here and the shop, at least it seemed that way - but behind the scenes there was a lot going on! I had a lot of custom orders which made me very happy, especially as my customer let me be creative and make all the choices. Also, she picked themes I like myself ;-) In this case, it was some Marvel Superheroes as well as some characters from Tolkien's Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

(Clicking on the picture should show a larger version)

Starting with the top left corner, we have: Ringwraith, Spring Spirit (the only one which doesn't fit the themes, as it was a previously spun and reserved yarn), Galadriel, Thorin Oakenshield, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Galadriel's Temptation, Loki (second version, I spun one before), Captain America, and Gandalf the White.

I'm in love with all of them, but I think my favourite is Thorin Oakenshield. I used different naturally-colours fibres instead of the ususal dyed merino, and the texture is different from my usual yarns. The spun-in wool locks add to that, and I like the add-ins I used - sword charms, and square beads which I think work well as a representation for armor.
