Tiny Dinosaur

Pattern: Tiny Dinosaur from Teeny Tiny Mochimochi
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock and Kogiu KPM
Needles: US1 Crystal Palace DPNs
Notes: The legs! Oh my God, the legs. How I struggled with picking up stitches in the right places and making tiny i-cords that looked nice. I ripped and reknit the legs over and over. I finally gave in and now have a fairly wobbly, off-kilter dinosaur. I also struggle with not pulling out bits of stuffing when I embroider on a toy. I didn't realize how badly I'd done until I saw the photo blown up on my computer monitor.

Knitting these little curiosities from Anna's book is so much fun. Like a vacation from my knitting life.
