Spring has Sprung

(Note: This post was supposed to be more elaborate but dragging a large knitted dinosaur around Central Park for a photo shoot with stroller, small child and small dog turned out to be more challenging than I had given the task credit for.)

It is spring, the birds are tweeting the sun is shining and love is in the air. Mr. Dinosaurus is looking for lurrve. To hunt down his ideal mate he has put on his best red bow tie ...... he has picked the finest brightest flower he could find (in order to charm an unsuspecting and demure lady dino) ...
... Mr. Dinosaurus is feeling very handsome indeed today ...... time to hail a cab and go to Central Park - some attractive young dino ladies might be out for an afternoon stroll ...
... perhaps some lady dinos will walk past while Mr. Dinosaurus relaxes by the boat pond. He is trying to seem like he is just enjoying the view - but really - he just wants to find a nice lady dino to chat to ...... can you spot Mr. Dinosaurus hanging out on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art? Maybe some lovely lady will stop to chat about some dino art?Poor Mr. Dinosaurus didn't find love on this sunny spring day. But soon he will meet his new loving family ... and perhaps his dino lady love too?

Does this mean that you're back to knitting toys again? I do hope so, not only for the pleasure of Baby Bunny, but because I love seeing them and you inspire me.
Do you design your own patterns?

I find your story with Rachael Rabbit so lovely. Last month, I found a kit for doing a Rachael Rabbit in a secondhand shop. You can go on my blog and see my Rachael Rabbit. My blog is: www.atypie.blogspot.com
I don't speak good english, sorry for my faults.

He's soooo handsome! What a day he and you had. I can tell he's, obviously, large...but exactly how TALL and WIDE is he? That's a lot of yarn! Cute post!

Oh...I so wanted him to find his lovely lady lurking behind a shrub or bench! Oh well! I wish you could have gotten someone to take a photo of you all decked out with dino, pram, baby bunny and pup!

Hi Rachael!
I LOVE Mr Dinosaurus :D He is amazing.
Love all the photos and how how he looks so happy ;)
Oh, I wish I were in NY. I have been there twice and I do love the city I bet many people approached you to say to Mr Danosaurus how handsome he is?
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
