I made this for someone who wanted an ami of the fantastic Mr. Fox.  In retrospect, I should have used a lighter, more orangey yarn, but I already had this color and thought it would be close enough.  Also, I should have used a smaller hook because you can see some gaps in the stitches (which I hate in an ami!)  I used a G hook, which usually doesn't gap with worsted weight, but for some reason it did with this yarn despite the fact that the yarn seemed pretty hardy for a worsted.  Lesson learned.  Ah well, I still like how he turned out!  Smiley  Thanks for looking!

Thank you so much everyone, your compliments really mean a lot!  I had a lot of fun making him!

Alliecat, I admire your work SO much! I can only hope to one day get my technique up to your level.

WOW! This is the most spot on Mr. Fox I've ever seen. Do you happen to have a pattern for it? I'd love to make it for my daughter.
