Tat It And See Day 10 The end.

Well here he is the finished tat and he IS A HIPPO!! My guess was correct, that solid body and short legs with feet so characteristic of the Artiodactyls (even toed hoofed mammals). Jane studies her animals well and has a great eye for anatomy. She must have been a zoologist in an earlier life!

This last bit didn't go easily for me as I split the thread putting on the bead (which was also much too big), and had a dreadful job extricating myself from a complete disaster.

This has been such a lot of fun, thanks Jane for days of agonising anticipation filling my brain with possible outcomes. I do hope she and others will do this again. It is so cool to see so many tatters tatting all time favorites.

With Jane's permission I have been fiddling with the pattern just a teeny bit, so expect to see more hippos coming soon to a blog near you!!
