Stomposaurus

As you can see I managed to finish the “Knitted Icon” pattern for Godzilla. It’s not one of my patterns, it was designed by Carol Meldrum. And the Ravelry folks are right, it’s a huge pain in the bum. The charts are not symmetrical, the pattern for the legs has a wrong stitch count, even the pattern for the fin on the back is missing a row. And there are no making up instructions, except for random cryptic stitch markings. It’s a bad pattern.

Having said that he’s a real hit with my son, who has been using him to stomp all over everything today and has generously changed this Icon’s name to Stomposaurus.

    Don’t you start! “Stomp, Stomp, Stomp” is all I’ve heard all morning 🙂

  3. Now honestly, did you pose the little upside down car and scattered bricks or is that your son’s efforts? He is excellent though despite your criticisms, I know 2 little guys who’d be delighted to have one (make that two) of those…

      The destruction was truly the work of a small boy, although I had to replace “Stompy” because he was resting on the sofa.

    Love the Stomposaurus, but if he dares to stomp on any traffic jams I may make in the future chez nous, oh boy will there be trouble!
