My next little project. It's a penguin (obviously) and I made him/her for a friend of mine who is pregnant with her third child.
Her first two kids got afghans, but I don't think that they got used, so I decided to make something different. (Plus, I didn't want to buy yarn and make an afghan if it wasn't going to be used, and I had all of this cheap yarn left over from old projects. cheap? Yes.)
But I like him! I think he's quite cute. I have a few other doll patterns from the same book, and I think I might make the one of the elephant for Xavier for Christmas. We'll see.
