I've been meaning to get rid of all the little left over bits of wool I've had for ages by knitting something stripy. When I asked Oki whether he'd like a snake, dinosaur or a different animal with a really long tail, he said he wanted all of them, which wasn't very helpful!
So I decided to just start knitting to see what would happen...I think it's a Dinosaur of some sort. It's nice and big. We haven't properly named him yet, but here he is getting acquainted with his new housemates :)
