Drum roll please!

The Mystery Toy is... Emerson the Incognito Alien!



I want to start off by thanking everyone who pre-ordered the pattern, and put their faith in my designs to buy it sight unseen! I had no idea how well a mystery pre-order would do. Sales exceeded my expectations! I plan to do it again sometime in the future, and I really thank you from the bottom of my heart

Emerson has been sitting for a while, and was pointed out by a friend that I really needed to get this pattern out soon. Before I could release him, he had to go through a bit of a make over. Originally he had no sweater, and looked a bit naked. His mustache was also different, and after playing around with many different options, I just loved the handle bar mustache the most!

I hope everyone who pre-ordered Emerson loves him just as much as I do, and that you all have tons of fun knitting him!
