Knitted Nessie :)

My last project for the Ravellenic Games is finished! Another WiP, of course šŸ™‚

Poor Nessie (pattern by Hansi Singh) had been in progress for almost three years, and it was almost done, too. This picture was uploaded to the project page on Ravelry in March 2011:

I entered this in the 2012 Ravellenics, but never got round to doing it. I guess one big obstacle was that we’d just moved and I would have to dig though my boxes in storage to find pipe cleaners for the tail and neck, and I just couldn’t be bothered. But today I made my boyfriend help me with the boxes, and now it’s finally done, stuffed and closed up during the closing ceremony šŸ™‚ Finished grafting the last two stitches together just as the torch was extinguished, and the last few ends were woven in before the fireworks ended. Phew!
