Today I'm missing my cousin Elizabeth's baby shower. I had hoped to go but the drive back just wouldn't work. I hate missing family time!!! But I sent along a little love in the form of a friendly dragon.
In addition to "That's not my dragon," a touchy-feely board book, part of the same series as the "That's not my monkey" book that went along with Clara's orangutan.
Look at that face! I used the Norberta pattern from Knitty and it came together fairly quickly using up some Lion Brand Homespun yarn which has a nubby texture to it which made him look even more scaley.
I rounded it out with a onesie that I hand-painted. I traced the pattern onto the onesie instead of using the freezer-paper stencils like I have in the past. This way was faster, but there were a lot more opportunities to mess up! I was very happy with the outcome, though. The theme of the baby shower is robots so I made another onesie, customized with baby Finn's name.
I am so excited to meet Finn in a couple months!!! Congratulations, Elizabeth!!
