We are Mesozoic if you please

It's the stentorious Mr. Stegs, breathtaking Bronty, and the tantalizing Trice all done!


Pattern: Dinosaurs from Xtreme-Knitting
Yarn: Miscellaneous acrylic scraps. Yes! It's acrylic! At least now these dinosaurs won't go extinct.

Other Materials:
Boye's interchangeable needles - sizes 5 and 6
Polyfill stuffing

These were really fun to make, especially from scrap yarn. I added green stripes to Mr. Stegs since his pale yellow wasn't doing anything for me. I'm hoping these go to a niece or nephew, but who knows? They might end up on my project table to keep me company. They sure are a hoot, those silly 'saurs!

Oh, they're swell! And the poetic justice of the acrylic, the bridging of the eons, really speaks to me!

hey - I just thought of the fact that acrylic is made out of petroleum is made out of dinosaurs. Natch!
