Melinda and Avery

Melinda is knit in acrylic on size 8 needles. She measures a good 14 inches from ear to toe. She is by far the biggest softy I've knit from this pattern.

She's a total tomboy. She loves to play in the dirt and make mudpies. She can play football with the boys and loves to catch bugs. Giselle is convinced she needs a make-over, which Melinda doesn't appreciate. She likes herself the way she is.

Avery is knit with blue and white wool on size 6's (the size I usually use).

He's quiet, but not patient. He tends to fidget and not get in the way. He is nervous most of the time, but for what reason, no one knows...

Aaden and Holland

They are both knit with acrylic in variegated colors. Aaden has a flat tail, while Holland has an I-Cord for a tail (a long, thin tube). Holland is about 125% the size of Aaden. Other than that they are the same.

Aaden and Holland are tiger brothers. Aaden is used to getting picked on and bossed around by his older brother, but he still gets his feelings hurt sometimes. Holland is very agressive, but when he needs to be he is a sweet and caring older brother.

This is Aaden.

This is Holland.
