My current work in progress:

1. Segel, designed by Lea Viktoria, knit from Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply Toes in the "Draco" gradient set on a 3.5 mm (U.S. size 4) needle.
2. Myriad stealth projects.

Bang a Gong (Get It On)

(Apologies to the late great Mark Bolan)

What’s with the T-Rex song title? Because I finished my own little T-Rex!

He is knit from Rebecca Danger’s Terrence the Tap Dancing T-Rex pattern. I used a skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock in the “Lucky” colorway, on a U.S. size 2 needle.

Just a couple of mods — I elected not to knit the striped chest piece because the yarn I used has a bit of a striping pattern in it.

After the body was half done, I knit the tail, rather than wait until after the body was complete and stuffed. I also knit the arms and legs at this point. Once the tail was done, I stuffed it and attached the legs to the body, and started stuffing the body. Once the body was complete, I sewed on the arms before finishing stuffing the body. Then, on to the head, stuffing the head, and embroidering on the face. That’s it!

This is intended as a baby gift for a baby boy due any time now.

And now I am knitting a bunny for the baby’s big sister. This one. It should be complete by my next blog post.

  1. i think Loki deserves a knitted bunny just for looking so handsome.

  2. LOL with the light behind him he could almost be a white bunny if his ears were a bit longer. I had to go to youtube and plan the song! Here you go https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVEhDrJzM8E

  3. A lady in our shawl group had knit a stegosaurus for her grandson. I passed around the picture of your T-Rex and everyone got a kick out of his smile and floppy lil legs!

  6. I LOVE knitting toys but I hate the sewing on part! I might have to knit those bunnies for my kids for Easter!

  7. Your T-Rex is adorable! Loki needs his own bunny!

  8. I love T-Rex the group and I love T-Rex the toy! Also, I love the kitty cat.

  9. Oh so cute! And Loki too.

  10. Lynne in Florida says:

    You’d better knit the baby bunny for Loki, or he might not forgive you. He’s SUCH a gorgeous cat!

  11. That’s great. Hope Loki doesn’t bite his head off!

  12. Midnite Baker says:

    Tis’ too cute for words!!!

  13. Loki sez: “Would I look like a bunny if I had longer ears?” Hey, Fofo beat me to it!

  14. Yes, Loki needs his own little bunny, stuffed with CATNIP! Which he will love & play with & NOM NOM NOM. Ahem. Maybe his bunny should be knit of the yarn spun from his own floof? I love Rebecca Danger’s little monsters & the T-Rex. Just adorable.

  16. That’s really cute. Unfortunately, I only know people who are having little girls. What did you stuff the dinosaur with? I’m working on a bunny of my own, and I’m stalled at that point with all its limbs just all over the place.

  17. I like that little T-Rex. I knit one of Rebecca Danger’s patterns, Sherman the Square Dancing Stegosaurus -http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sherman-the-square-dancing-stegosaurus – it turned out great. I think her patterns are pretty well written and fun. I like the names a lot! I think that new little baby boy will love that little T-Rex! The color is great.
