Well kind of, I haven't been able to get him back long enough to add his horns, Heather is rather fond of him you know.
Not sure he is quite as Gruffalo as I'd hoped but hey, Heather recognised him straight away and she's the one I was knitting him for although that may be more down to "the purple prickles all over his back" Can't think of any other creature that has such lovely features?
So now we have the Gruffalo himself to watch the DVD repeatedly, throughout the day, with Heather. And to be read the books too. Oh, and of course the video all about his child too..... In fact Heather keeps changing her mind as to whether this is the Gruffalo or his child, I think there is a little of the fear factor when it comes to the Gruffalo himself, although not so much as the BIG BAD MOUSE where Mama must always have her eyes covered by a tiny persons hands although he's not really big you? He's just a shadow ;)
Pattern found on Ravelry of course and knitted up on 3mm needles from scrap bag DK.
Right, upstairs to see if I can ease him out of her sleeping hands and give him the horns I have waiting for him.....
