I'm very taken with Reggie. He's actually quite a bit darker green than the photo would indicate, because the photo was taken with flash. Think dark green, just lighter than forest green.
I'm not quite sure who I'm going to inflict with him but I'm sure there's someone I know who will find him as cute as I do. Maybe my friend Pat. I was going to give him to my goddaughter, the Penn State student, but he's just not soft enough for her. The next one, in medium olive green Gedifra Living (100% new wool), will be for her, I think.
This alligator scarf is a kit from Morehouse Farms. I've bought a number of their kits, mostly for scarves. This alligator is definitely the cutest. There's only one flaw with it, which is VM (vegetative matter, a euphemism for nasty little bits of plants) in the yarn. I don't know why the yarn isn't cleaner. Their fancy handpainted merino yarns are.
