Drake the Dreaded

The dragon backpack is done and I've named him "Drake the Dreaded." I'll be shipping him off to the book's author in the next couple of days. If you visit my blog at all, you may remember the post in which I put up my original sketch for the piece. As you can see, the concept is largely the same but the piece has definitely evolved. This is true of almost everything I do. Even when I feel pretty certain where I'm going with a project, I tend to adjust as I go.

For all of you who gave me your thoughts on teaching left handed folks to knit, thanks. It sounds like most left handed folks feel that ita^?(TM)s fine, if not preferable to learn a^?oeright handeda^?? but suggest teaching the continental method. If I do want to teach someone to knit with their left hand, then I can either sit across from them or use a mirror.

And for those of you who think my dog is cute, well, she sends a wet cold nose in your ear at 6 in the morning, and she means it with all the love in the world.

She also posed for this glamour shot:

We would take a lot fewer pictures if she'd do less cute things. Damn her!
