I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Aw shucks! Thanks!

The little wooden beads are upcycled from a broken necklace I got in a Value Village grab bag!

Nice work! The wood beads remind me of driftwood. The mermaids are gorgeous, too!
