A is for Armadillo Pattern! Giveaway

Hello everyone:)
I have just finished designing and writing my pattern for a new little creature…. an Armadillo!
I think these are the sweetest animals. This is what I have discovered about them while doing my research…These wonderful little creatures come from South America, they are related to the Aardvark and there are 20 different varieties of Armadillo.The word Armadillo is Spanish and translated into english means, ‘Little Armoured One’ They sleep up to 20 hours a day in burrows and forage on insects in the early morning and late afternoon. They don’t have good eyesight but have a keen sense of smell. To read more about these lovely animals visit here.
This is a new pattern and I always like to share my new patterns with my readers in the form of a giveaway:) I will be giving away 2 patterns. All you have to do is leave a comment. I will choose the winners on Wednesday and announce them here in this post:)
Congratulations to:

    Great pattern. I saw my first armadillo on my first visit to Florida last winter. My sister and I tried to catch one, but it turns out that we were mistaken in thinking that they just roll up into a ball when scared – they can run like a racehorse.

    What a cutie! I would love to add this to the menagerie my granddaughters are accumulating – thanks largely to your inspired designs!

    Although I’ve traveled extensively, I’ve never seen an armadillo in the wild. In Wisconsin, we don’t have armadillos except at the zoos. I love your new creation and hope some will find their way to the “Great North” soon 😉

    This is adorable! We were just learning about Armadillos so it would be fun to make one!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Armadillos are awesome looking. Did you know that they can carry leprosy? The strange things I learn from the internet.. (:

    What a wonderful little creature! Your creations are so true to the characteristics of the animals. I can see that you take great care and pride in your work. This little guy would make a wonderful addition to the “menagerie” that my grandson Max (who is due to arrive in August!) has in his nursery. Thank you for all of your hard work.

    Hi Linda,
    The armadillo is wonderful. I am a beginning knitter and love your patters. I must remember to send you some pictures of the dachshunds I have made from your etsy pattern 🙂

    I am always looking for new animal patterns for my students puppet shows. I am a teacher at a Waldorf Early Childhood in the south side of Chicago and would love to include the armadillo in our cache.

    Adorable! I would love to make one of these (or ask my grandmother to make one for me:).

    Brilliant, clever girl. Of course I want it. And if you don’t pick me, of course, I’ll have to buy it. There are worse things than being hooked on Linda –

    Hi. Only you could make an armadillo cute and cuddly!

  19. Snap June 7, 2011 at 2:29 am #

    He is adorable. I live in Texas and should have an armadillo … don’t you think?!!! I’ll make him and give him a very good home … promise!!! Thank you for the chance.

    I’ll confess that I had NO IDEA how much I wanted to knit an armadillo until I saw this pattern. And now I MUST knit one. So lovely. My children LOVE playing with their little knit toys, including the horse knit from your pattern. Beautiful work, Linda.

  22. Elizabeth June 7, 2011 at 6:24 am #

    How sweet! Your patterns are always so amazing! Thanks for the chance.

    Blessings, Elizabeth

    Dear mama4earth

    Good job!

  30. Donna June 7, 2011 at 8:09 pm #

    Linda, I cannot begin to knit these amazing creatures, but each time I see one you knit I want to try to make one out of wool/felt…What do you stuff yours with so that they stand so nicely? Do you think I could do them in felt?

  31. Toby Locke June 8, 2011 at 1:49 am #

    Hi Linda, Still working on my Shalom cardi, I have a question…Is S2KP2 the same as S2KP? Thanks!
    P.S. Love the armadillo!

    armadilly, so silly!
    what will be next
    whatever the challenge
    to us will be best
    simple of nature
    spun and conjured
    wool and needles
    looped and knotted
    creating a gift
    entwining our hearts
    so sweet and swift
