Knitted ferrets
I have been very busy recently knitting these ferrets. They are made using double knitting wool and eyelash yarn held together. They take quite a while to make but I think they look convincing. It has taken me 6 months of practice to get them looking like ferrets what do you think?

From left to right we have a Sandy an Albino and a Silver.

Hee hee before I read the text I looked at the photo and I thought 'wow, they really look like ferrets actually!, except for the fur, they kind of look like ferrets would if they had a wash and blowdry, cause the fur's different'. So yes really convincing. I thought about posting that... and then I thought ' where else but here would you see a post beginning with

'I have been very busy recently knitting these ferrets.'

Then I saw 'it has taken me about 6 months to get them looking like ferrets' and thought 'hell why was she so keen on succeeding on getting ferret-like ferrets? Seriously did she need some knitted ferrets or something?'
Hmmm I might make their butts a bit smaller maybe? I'm only criticising because you asked - sorry. But I never had a pet ferret so don't really know... They certainly look lifelike. Sandy kind of reminds me of a possum! (we have way more possums than ferrets in NZ so that's not a reflection on your knitting)
Really cute and better than teddy bears IMO because they are kind of floppy! I like how you made Sandy's ears less hairy because that's what ferret ears look like right? Skillz on the body shaping.

Just out of curiosity was this kind of an exercise in making something look like what you wanted... or do you know a kid who loves ferrets... or were they props or was it just a whim?
If they were posed with heads up in the air they would definitely pass for ferrets on a brief glance.
