And the winner is...

Pixiewear, please contact me with your mailing address. You can email me at oiyi.yau(at) gmail (dot) com.

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest! Did you know that Anna has posted the pattern for the Baby Gators for free? You can get it here or here. Now let's see some baby gator knitting.

____________________________________________________________________________________
Last year, I test knitted a few of the patterns for Anna's book using yarn from my own stash. I had to keep it a secret for over a year, but now I finally can show what I made.
Plucky Mushrooms, I used assorted handspuns scraps I had on hand. The colors definitely indicates that it's a deadly fungi! At least they are pretty to look at.Squirrels on Wheels, it's a new breed of squirrels at the park!Grouchy Couch, all done in fair isle knitting. The knitting was labor-intensive, but totally worth the results. Everyone that I have shown this to gets a kick out of it.All 4 cushions are removable. Perfect for a doll pillow fight.I tried to adjust the t.v. for this little guy, but all I got was static. (The bear was made for me by Sara a long time ago. It's one of my favorite dolls in my toy cabinet.)

See how awesome all the patterns are from the book? Go get the book!

You really are killing me with cuteness! Now I'm torn between making the squirrel on wheels and the alligator next.. I just can't decide!
