Last year my youngest son wanted me to knit him a dinosaur for his birthday. I knit the body and one leg before I bored and put it down, never to pick it up again. This year he asked me to finish the dinosaur. Instead of completing the original one I started all over again, this time with an acrylic so it could be washed (I originally was using fishermans wool) when it got dirty.
He loves his new dino and now wants the other two in the series. I don't remember where I got the pattern but it's titled as extreme knitting.
Here is his finished long neck Xanders Dino
