A little bit of Basil

Nevermind the hole in my wall or my couch, sheesh... this post isn't really about how shabby my living room is, although it could be. It's really about a little dinosaur buddy that I knit for a certain birthday boy.

If I was very ambitious I'd make a few more in different colours so he could have a proper Boogie Woogie Party.
