Pokémon for Charity

Sadly, this will be the last year they run this charity event. There were too many technical difficulties and complaints to make it worth running for a fifth year.

The attention to detail in Kimberly Chapman’s design of this knitted toy is incredible. She even gives further explanation in her image gallery on keeping the design as…
