Deadline: Easter

Some of P.'s favorite books are from a British series about a boy named Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs. Previously, we've always checked them out from the library, but now, thanks to a certain rabbit, P. now owns five Harry books in one collection:

He also has his very own bucket basketful of dinosaurs:

Yep, I finished just under the wire. A very late night on Saturday (followed by a very early morning) made for one tired bunny, but one happy little guy.

Pattern: available here

Yarn: Rowan Handknit Cotton color 316 (brontosaurus), color 209 (stegosaurus), and color 315 (triceratops), plus black embroidery thread

Started: 3/8/06 (or thereabouts)

Finished: very late on 4/15/06

Comments: My wonky gauge on the stegosaurus's spines meant that I only did six spines rather than the nine that the pattern called for, but it doesn't look so bad. This pattern would be a great introduction to knitting stuffed toys. I've made several of those felted sheep in the past, and those are quite a bit more involved than these dinosaurs are with regard to shaping, short rows, etc. If you don't mind a little bit of fiddly finishing (and these aren't really that bad--I just like to complain), these are a ridiculously fast knit and a cute gift idea.
