Here's my first knitted plushy - it'll be a Christmas present for my adorable nephew and I hope he enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for him.  I plan to make several more from the same book Amigurumi Knits!

Let me know what you think...

Great job with it! I messed up my first one. Hope my second turns out as great as this!

Thanks so much everyone.  I had a blast making this and plan to do at least one more in a different color.  I've also started the octopus pattern from the same book with a Noro yarn in greens, blues and purples. 

I wish I didn't have to work 8 hours a day so I would have more time for crafting!

He loved it!  Hooray!  And everyone was very impressed with all the Christmas toys I knitted.
