FO: Stuffed Dinosaur
So I started knitting this 5yrs ago and gave up cuz I ran out of yarn and it was a difficult project for me. I had no idea when I started how big it was meant to be. (I admit it I don't always focus on the details in the directions )I decided to give it anouther go when I found the pieces on the bottom of my closet. My 9yo DS remembered that I had meant for it to be for him and he was excited for me to actually finish it all be it years later. It is far from perfect and it was a real learning tool for me. My other DS and DD want one now too so I am sure theirs will be an improvement. Here it is....oh and my DS got to help design him so I am not taking credit for color combinations and he was very excited his build a bear clothes fit it so that will be nice to cover up some of the flaws. LOL

Awww...how sweet! I'm glad you finished! It looks great, and your son looks happy as a dinosaur (as opposed to a lark).
