Rawr It's a Dinosaur!

I've moved onto my newest project, Terence the Tap Dancing T-Rex. He is one of Rebecca Danger's newest patterns. Her designs are always so cute but this guy is especially fun. I've been quite antsy to work on him but put it off to the side so I could make sure I finished my project for the Ravellenic games on time.

I decided to knit him with some of the sock yarn I bought at the big sale Joann's had a few months ago. Funny enough I bought 8 skeins of sock yarn and so far I'm only setting two aside for socks. I'm using size 1 needles to get the fabric tight enough to keep the stuffing inside; this is my first time using needles this small!

My plan is to pair it with Dinosaur versus Bedtime and give it at a baby shower I've got coming up soon. I can't wait to see how he turns out!

  2. Ooops, your project is NOT a pair of socks, as I had stated in my original comment. I have a pair of similar yarn, though. I wanted to make socks with it, but it turned into a Wingspan scarf. You'll get used to using the small needles. It does take some adjustment. You'll do an hour of work and only have knit about a two inches. Still, it's worth it!

  3. Cool looking yarn! Your sock yarn story sounds like mine- I got three skeins of it for a gift, and none of it for socks.
