terence the tap-dancing t-rex

The last time you saw Terence, I was vowing to finish him and the many hearts blanket by the end of September ... so much for that! I love, love, love this pattern and will be making many more Rebecca Danger patterns in the future. Great construction techniques that minimize seamimg! However, I learned the hard way that her yarn estimates are completely accurate ... I was hoping to squeak by with one skein of Cascade 220 ... nope! So the left foot is slightly darker, but a close match. We'll just have to call him "Lefty" I guess!
Pattern: Terence the Tap-Dancing T-Rex by Rebecca Danger (my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: One skein Cascade 220 (turquoise), 25 yards or so of mystery turq. wool, tiny amounts of Knit Picks Swish Worsted in Carrot and Orange colorways.
Needles: Size 5
Notes: Next time I'd go down a needle size ... Terence turned out just fine, but you can still see a bit of the stuffing. Slighter denser fabric would make for even better results.
