My boyfriend, now in his 30's, is obsessed with dinosaurs. I put together this little stegosaurus for him last week as part of his Valentine's Day gift and it was met with much love and appreciation.

Of course I'm not certain exactly what dinosaur skin looked like, but I'm convinced that it was not one colour, but a variety of many colours, much like a skein of sock yarn. At least, that's what I'm going to believe until science proves me wrong.

This stegosaurus was made using Kroy Socks FX yarn in Cascade The pattern was my first purchase from PlanetJune (http://www.planetjune.com/shop/). I've been a long time fan of her work, but never had the opportunity to purchase one of her patterns before. I'd give it the thumbs up for quality. The instructions were clearly written and came with lots of pictures to help me figure out the placement of the spines and legs.

The dinosaur is supposed to come out about 10 inches wide, which would be great for a child's toy. Since I wanted it to be more of an ornamental piece for an adult, I decided the sock yarn would make it a better size. I'm not sure exactly how it came out, but I believe it's about 5-6 inches wide. A much more reasonable size for sitting on the bf's nightstand.

Thanks for looking,

I've started my own crochet blog, have a look...http://cthulhucrochet.blogspot.com/
