A few days ago I posted that I needed a name for Beaver. Have had 2 suggestions but would welcome more so thought I would dedicate this post to the contest.
I have been making the "larger" version of the pictured pattern as part of an Olympic Knitting Challenge. He stands about 10" high but needs a wash to shrink him so the individual rows of knitting will not be as visible and his "insides" won't show through or escape.
The name has to be "polite" as my children - and occasionally the Grandchildren - read my entries. It will be the name I use in future so that is another reason. It can reflect what he is, why he was made, or a name you think suits him.
The prize -- how about my second one in either the same or smaller version. Or you could have a hedgehog which is another great toy made the same way and there you can choose your own colours. There would be a delay in getting your prize out as I make it but I would keep you updated with the progress with posts.
Hope you will send along your submissions before the end of the Olympics.
