Midweek Squee: Ravellenic Lemming

My Lemming is on there tagged with my Ravelry name, HotPinkCrayola (which I need to look into changing in line with Amiguruthi! Feel free to add me btw). He didn’t win gold (gold being shop vouchers, free patterns or free safety eyes, the latter of which I totally wanted lol) but as you’ll see he had some stiff competition 🙂
