Here is the Emperor Penguin:



I made him out of Lion Brand Microspun. He's a Christmas gift for my nephew- I gave him a list of all the animals in the book, and he picked a penguin. It was a very fun knit!

Sometimes it's knit and sometimes it's crochet.

Wow! That Emperor Penguin is awesome. I am impressed with all of the finished projects that everyone is posting. I've been debating about whether or not I would actually make anything from this book but after seeing everyone's toys... I want to try some, too.

I am so happy to see a penguin out of the micro spun. I'm making one for a swap angel package and I decided to try it with micro spun because it was the only orange I could find. He looks great. I'm really impressed.

Thanks you guys!  Wink

I really liked the microspun. It was the only bright colored sport weight I could find at Michael's. I was a bit nervous about it b/c I've read so many posts about it being "splitty" and a pain to work with. I didn't think that at all. I loved knitting with it.

I used microspun before and I never had problems with it spliting. I didn't find any in brown for his feet and beak so I think I'm going to see if I have a little brown wool in my stash somewhere.

My brown is not microspun either. I think it's Katia Diana. There is a microspun "mocha" that I looked at, but it's a very light peachy-tan. I don't know why they call it that.

Hey Bethann, or anyone else. I think it may have been asked, but I don't think I read any answers on here. Any tips on seeming these guys? I'm sewing the adult penguin back to his belly and it looks crap-tacular. I can't seem to get it to look ok.  Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions.

me too! me too, craftykate.  My seams are craptacular as well.  My kangaroo looks VERY homemade.  Suggestions would be terrific.
