Wow it has been awhile since I have had a post like this, and how perfect to be my first "Thursday Knit Night" post. Meet Chadwick the Shakespearean Caterpillar!
After so many, many (many!) requests, I have finally gotten this guy done. I lurve him and so does The Kid:
Yup. Gratuitous use of my baby as a model. That's what we have come to. Here's some more:
This guy is perfect for self-striping sock yarn, or to use up bits and bobs of yarn. Each segment only took about 35-45 yards on the worsted weight one. He'd also be great to add crinkles, and bells, and rattles to for a baby discovery toy. He's awesome.
Notice the name change from Charlie to Chadwick? Well, when I originally wrote the pattern for the LYS tour I had forgotten I already had a monster named Charlie. So, I decided Chadwick was a good name instead! Chadwick is available through Knit Picks, or I am setting it up on Ravelry after I finish typing this for international buyers who have difficulty with the Knit Picks website.
