So during my unplanned blogging break, I was still running those Monthly Challenges over in my Ravelry Group. January's was a knitting challenge, and the request was for me to design a giant 20 pound cat. Something I would never have dreamed of doing on my own... which is why I find these challenges so much fun!
Here he is with Little Miss Charlotte:
He's so huge... and so cuddly... the kiddies LOVE him!
I've left the ends of his whiskers free, so that their position can be changed on a whim...
And here he is with the boy who likes to be called Thunder Lizard:
Which just goes to prove that you're never too old for a cuddle toy!
And of course I have to show you the winning entry from the challenge:
How brilliant is that!
I'm mesmerised by his eyes...
DawnKimMarch was a very deserving winner.
Now that my pattern has been fully tested, it is available for sale as a PDF for AU$4.50
And if you're wishing for a crochet version - my testers are working on the pattern right now!
