Thank you for the comments! Yeah, he knit up very quickly. Once he started taking shape, I just didn't want to put the needles down. I can't wait to see everyone's versions! There are so many different colors and types of fur yarns that can be used.
I bought some eyes and a nose for him at Joann Fabrics (my local AC Moore and Michaels only carry glue-on googly eyes :-(). Just for the heck of it I went with more realistic eyeballs as opposed to the solid black. Here's the final result. One of my friends told me he looks like he's wearing a rainbow clown wig. :-)
