The dragon is looking darling. Did you finish it? I'd love to see the finished product whenever you do.

And the kids' Boa is beautiful! My daughter just had to give away her two Red-Tailed Boas b/c she's about to have a baby and just couldn't keep up with them and the newbie. She was very sad (they were getting pretty large).

Anyway, look forward to seeing the dragon scarf! Thanks for posting the instructions so far.

I'm off to look at more of your blog...

I'm wondering if you've done more on your "Beginnings of a dragon". I'd love to see the complete pattern. I know a few grandsons who'd love to have one. You can email me at Beverly5876@yahoo.com

Actually I have done the spikes down the back but I never got around to posting them. I will try to hunt them down and get them up. I am going out of town this week but I will leave this in my inbox so hopefully I won't forget.
