Ok, this is my third knitted amigurumi and I think it's the best so far!  I can't wait to give this to my little nephew!  Just one more to make before Christmas and at this rate, I should have them all done on time Smiley



He's a very frisky fellow!



He likes to take a ride on the Loch Ness Monster



He thinks a hug is just a strangle you haven't finished yet



I can't get enough


Hope you like him too - let me know what you think.  He's for a 4 year old little boy.

YOur knitting amigurumis are so awesome.  Each one looks perfect, and I love the colors you used on them all.  Your nephews will be very happy on christmas morning.

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.

Thanks! =blush= I'm so glad you all like him. 

I brought him to work yesterday and folks seemed to enjoy playing with him since his tenacles have pipecleaners inside and are posable.  I can't wait for Christmas myself now...

I would highly recommend getting this book by Hansi Singh, all the creatures are coming out even better than I imagined.
