If you are on Ravelry this little guy probably doesn't startle you one bit. He is far from extinct there. In fact he is flourishing in the warm Ravelry waters and you'd be hard pressed not to stumble across one of his cousins in just about every project pond. My mini gator isn't quite full grown, but his steady high fiber diet ensures he should reach his adult length very soon. He's looking forward to warming the neck of a very special two year old in the near future. Baby Alligator scarf from Morehouse Farm.
This is another everlasting bag stopper in the works. The yarn is Araucania 'Nature Cotton' from Chile. This is the yummiest, squishiest cotton in the world! It's so incredibly soft and the color is delicious. ooooooohhhhhh....Orangey goodness!
Garter/Gator scarf from another angle....knit, knit, knit, knit, knit, knit, -you get the idea.
And lastly, because I just can't seem to get enough of the ol'garter stitch. Tah-dah! One sleeve down....One to go! The resurrected Tree Jacket - SHE LIVES! (and wouldn't it be nice to get to wear her while the weather is cold) And knit, knit, knit, knit, knit, knit, knit......... sigh.
