I originally made this for a personal swap, but it fell through, so I guess it is mine to keep.

This was done by intarsia, and wasn't even completely finished. But it was taking soooo long to finish that I just cast off with what I had, which doesn't look too bad since I had finished his face. I believe there were about 114 stitches across and I think I made it through maybe 30 or 40 rows. It took about 2 hours for 3 or 4 rows! I would watch movies while I knit it, and it seemed like I made no progress, lol! I don't know what I'm going to do with it right now. I was thinking maybe a pillow, but I don't want it to get torn up.

This awesome! I would be super excited if I made it for a swap that fell through  Grin I dont have really any suggestions on what to do with it though (other than just observe it for its greatness, LOL)

What is this "normal" you talk about? Is it contagious? OMG! Stay away! Don't touch me! I might catch your normal!

SUPER cute! Very talented as well  Smiley Sorry the swap fell through  Sad

You could also finish the edges and make it a kind of tapestry wall hanging?

Or to show off your awesome skills you could make it into a capelet/wrap or something similar by attaching a closure to the top two edges?

Wow, this is awesome!  If I were you I think I'd shelve it for a while until I'd got past the boredom, then take it out again and try and finish it.  It would make an amazing blanket and would be totally worth the effort, even if it means you put it away and don't look at it for 6 months until the inspiration takes you again!
