Living in Northeast Florida, we are surrounded by lizards. Every time I step out the front door, I hear the little critters rustling in the leaves. It has taken me a while to get used to them. The good news is they seem to keep the insect population under control. When I saw this free pattern on Ravelry, I knew I had to knit one.
I used about 35 yards of Red Heart Super Saver yarn left over from the Balaclava I knitted previously. With size 5 double point needles, the finished lizard was about 8 inches long. I love the fact that I was able to use glass 6/0 beads instead of having to embroider the eyes.
