Although the major work on my penguin was done about a month ago, I finally got around to assembling the little guy.  Muchas Gracias to Wil for posting about the pattern

Please don't laugh at his little thumb-tack eyes, he's very sensitive about them.  Besides, I haven't decided what I want to use for the eyes yet and the push pin is purely temporary.

I feel pretty groovy because labeled the pattern 'piquant', "A little something for the seasoned knitter."  Yee Haw!

Jeff, Too much!  Really fun.  I really love the little belly flap drooping over the feet.  Wonderful, Guy!

Very cute!  Is he yours, or will be gifted out?

This particular guy is all mine.  He's slightly imperfect and I think I'll tackle the pattern again before giving them as gifts.  Besides, I think my niece would like one in pink or purple.

Why do you do this to me. I have baby blankets, jackets, bootees, hats to make for my grandchild & now you add toys?!!!!!!!!

Kidding, well done it looks cute.  & yes I'll make one eventually I think.

 Jeff you always amaze me with your stitches dude.  I love this little penquin!!

I have this little guy's half-finished brother in my knitting basket, but I got distracted and never bought the stuffing material.  I don't have any eyes either, but thought some rhinestone buttons would be nice if I can find them.

ooo, rhinestones!  Be still, my beating heart.

Impressive work on the penguin, Jeff...congrats!!  I saw that on Knitty and even printed it off, just never got around to trying it.  Maybe some day...
