A great crested gecko and a cat

A great crested gecko and a cat

Do you remember that I accepted a commission for a Great Crested Gecko before Christmas?
Well here he is. Just before he went to his new home of a (real) gecko mad teenager.

I was really rather pleased with him.

I ended up using the pattern for this Komodo Dragon, found on etsy. Click on the image for the link.

I added the spines to mimic the ‘crests’. Great crested crochet geckoI love how the legs hold the body up.Great crested crochet geckoI actually find him quite menacing!

This is in complete contrast to my second Amineko cat. A passing remark made by my mum, after she had seen my first Amineko cat

Bah!

Bah!

lodged in my brain and here is the result.
Amineko catMy parents spent Christmas Day with us so I took the opportunity to photograph both cats together. I lengthened the legs on the new cat.


I think the second cat is looking a little worse for wear!
Details regarding the free pattern can be found on my previous Amineko cat post here.

I think a third cat may be on the cards. Mine is looking rather lonely now.

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

  2. I love the way the sleepy, lazy nature of a cat is captured here. They look so cosy together that you can’t possibly only have one. (Warning: this is the way my brain works when I go off to the dog shelter but these are only made of wool and won’t need feeding/cleaning/walking/veterinary visits so more than one is O.K.)
    Love the gecko tongue.
