Super Super Cute Dragon

I know things have been quiet on the posting front.  I've been hard at work completing my Summer Garden Granny Throw.  Having finally finished the joining of 120 squares, no mean feat at around 15 hours work, I am now zooming along the granny borders.  The final Ta Da moment is approaching fast!

In spite of my, quite frankly obsessive, determination to finish the throw I've been distracted by a couple of mini-projects.  The first of which, this little dragon, a gift to my daughter for working so hard at her maths.

This Dragon is once again from the Super-Super Cute Crochet book by Brigitte Read.  The wings were an addition by myself once I was assured that a dragon 'must' have wings.  Aside from these I followed the pattern faithfully using Stylecraft Special DK yarn in Lipstick and a 3mm hook.

When only half way through the main body section I could not believe he would end up the right shape.  Luckily lots of stuffing in the right places worked wonders.  He became 'cute' as soon as the back spines were introduced (Stylecraft Special DK in Bright Green).  Lovely to be able to make a little gift for someone I love.
