Hey guys! A little girl from the church I attend is about to turn three, so I wanted to knit her a really special gift. I'd never knit a toy before, so this is my first attempt - I'm fairly pleased with the results, but mostly because it's such a cool pattern! :) (This is also my first attempt at posting up a resized picture, so we'll see how that goes...)
I filled it with yarn instead of polyfill, because I wanted it to look extremely chubby but still be really cuddly :) Let me know what you think!

Too cute! You're right, it is a great pattern. Fantastic work, as always! It will probably become her best buddy.

That is very cute!
I'd like to make toys like that, but I have trouble getting over the "fussiness" factor. I have plenty of patterns and have started a couple, but then they become UFOs. I want to get over that, because I love the results (like this) that I see.

Gosh, that's cute! I may have to try one of those for my niece--she's crazy for penguins.

You did an awesome job, and I like the chubbiness. Some one like him/her would look so cute in my collection.

ETA: Mason... a pattern just for you.

Cute! I'm knitting a penguin for my nephew, as I type (well, not at the same time, but you know what I mean!) Good job, your little friend is going to like it!

At 56 I'm a penguin addict, there are LOTS of them around here, made from various materials. I'm going to have to knit one for, uh, my grand daughter. She'll have to have it live here though, near it's mommy. :heart:
