Norberta

My first stuffed knit toy!

Norberta

Norberta from Knitty, made for a friend at work who will be out for several weeks recuperating from surgery. She is a fellow WoW geek, and I thought a fearsome dragon/dinosaur beastie would be fitting. :)

Yes, that's Minas Tirith that Norberta is attacking.

Norberta was made with TLC Cotton Plus, done wildly off-gauge on size 6 needles. The pieces all matched up with each other just fine. I got a slightly stumpier head than the "real" one has, but that was the only real difference that I saw.

Is a Norberta a name play off the baby dragon in Harry Potter named "Norbert"?

She's way cute. I want to make one!
