Eyes to crochet

One of the themes for my entry for the sculpture award is eyes. So I need to make eyes to attach to my totem poles. I plan to sit on the train making these. I am lucky that by the time I get on a train there is plenty of space, but I am hoping to freak some people out, crocheting eyes.
These are my attempts last night to get a size that fits. The last with the big pupil seems to be the most realistic, so that's where I'm going to start. Should be fun.
As an aside, I am wondering what the etiquette is for replying to people who make comments on my blog. I love getting them and am constantly surprised at people making the effort to make a comment. As you can tell, I've never had a comment I didn't appreciate.
I have been making comments on the blog itself, but I feel the need to continue the conversation with the particular person, but am unsure. You can tell that I rarely leave comments and don't expect to be replied to. If you would like to leave a comment about this, please feel free and I'll reply accordingly.

the eyes are great--remarkably life-like! As for comments--let me know what you come up with. . . .

How about felted eyeballs?

Hard to wet-felt on the train, but imagine the reaction you'd get if you were needlefelting on your commute!!

Guaranteed to get you plenty of elbow room
