Lizard in Yarmulke

As the holidays draw near, I realized I'd better get to work on some other things, including a scarf for Mikey. I completed that last night, and went on to knit him a yarmulka (kippa).

This is the first time I've knit a loopy thing - thanks to Crazy Aunt Purl for her how-to description. I needed no help for the drop stitch part of the pattern, having done lots of scarves worked with 1 or 2 wrap yarnovers.

I then worked up a sort of disk in blue yarn with a row of white fuzzy weird stuff, on doublepoint needles. It looks weird from both the 'right' and 'wrong' sides. But hey! Iguana kopfs aren't conducive to kippot anyway, so whatever the finished kippa looks like, it's going to look silly on him. (Shhhhhhh! Don't tell him he looks silly! I told him he was even more gorgeous with it on so as to avoid any Stink Eye coming through in the photo.)

Now, off to finish my glovtens and work up a cat toy to pack up with a scarf for a friend of mine...Bless her heart! She's discovered Elf Hand Knitwerks, my favorite yarn shop, sells gift certificates, and has come to realize that they make excellent holiday gifts for someone who needs nothing. Else. Nothing else but y a r n.

You can never have too much yarn. Really.

Love the kippa! He is one stylin' iguana, I gotta tell ya.

So, did he need two circumcisions?

Alas, trying to find a moyle willing to circumcise reptiles has been impossible...
