Trixie the Triceratops  
Actually, the Triceratops is not called "Trixie" because B. deferred to G. in the naming stakes and so we ended up with Richard. Trixie, after all, is an in-joke known only to a handful of denialists.

Anyway, crochet project 2 is an apology to B. for failing to instantly produce a crocodile scale cardigan and is based on this pattern from Ravelry. The horns were a total nightmare to crochet and I ended up using a technique called a magic ring, rather than the one in the pattern. I also didn't stuff them because I couldn't honestly see how to fit any stuffing into them.

B. is very pleased.

We have a gingham stegosaurus called Rachel (and a gingham T. Rex called Herbert) so G. made a case that the name "fitted".

In the context, it certainly does!

Thanks! We had an emergency run for more navy wool when I was completing the shawl and B. spotted this in the shop and commented that he liked it.
