I'm knitting a Penguin as part of my 2006 Christmas list. (Yes, I know, I'm way way behind)

It's an Urban Commando Penguin. the back, head and wings are in a grey/black/white urban camo colour.

My question - which do you think will look better - black feet,beak and throat with a charcoal grey belly?

Or Charcoal beak, throat and feet, with a black belly?

With any luck I will find the little toy rifle to sling over one shoulder. A friend has suggested an i-cord cigarette hanging from the corner of the beak as well.

I'd go with the black feet, beak and throat

I say black feet, beak, and throat as well.

I agree - black feet, beak and throat - with a charcoal grey belly...

Any combination would probably look right. I think the beak and feet should be the same color regardless of what combination you decide upon.

At least you didn't say it's a Christmas squirrel....

As I said - this was part of my 2006 Christmas knitting - your success with the damnsquirrel shamed me into doing this. At least commando penguin doesn't have fun fur and felting....

The thought of the rifle scares me a bit -- how about something less violent ... a can of spray paint perhaps???

I figure that since the Penguins have joined forces with the Dutch and the Manatees in the Supreme Evil Plot to Flood the world (and you all thought it was global warming! Ha!) the rifle is the least scary part of the penguin.

Black feet, beak and throat.

Given that the penguin is associated with Christmas 2006, couldn't the penguin carry a candy cane, in the appropriate colour, of course...

That's the next model - Floridian Penguin.

Honestly when he said Commando penguin I thought he'd be sans underwear. Tells you where my mind is at lately.

well - he is. Very few penguins aren't.

the front is done, the back is done, just gotta do wings and feets and assemble and stuff.

Pictures tonight unless power goes out.
