A little stashbuster from me - knitted with acrylic yarn i have and 3.75mm needles from a pattern by Yvonne Boucher. I made it for my co-worker's toddler.http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3045/2597718031_a64eab081e.jpg

I used lots more yarn than the knitting alone, because i stuffed the caterpillar with the rest of it!

:lol: He is so cute! :muah: He looks happy with life even if he doesn't have any starch in his antennae. I think he's easy going.

Very cute! I've crocheted quite a few of these for baby shower gifts, the moms always seem to like them. There is also a really neat crocheted ball that I've made. My DGD liked hers until she got a bouncy ball.

The colors that you chose are very cute.

Thank you :) I have loads of acrylic that my grandmother gave me and i use it for projects like that. The colors are so wild that i can't really knit anything but toys or similar. So i fugured that stuffing it with the yarn instead of buying toy stuffing could be a great idea. I also collect all the yarn tails that i cut from all the projects in a little bag and don't throw it away. All the leftovers are going into that bag too, so it all ends up inside the toys:thumbsup:

I think that caterpillar has chomped on some Miracle Grow in the garden. He (she?) is very cute!
