First of all i would like to thanks alabamawhirly (Suzanne Stallard) for the awesome pattern. It's hers, i do not own the pattern Smiley You can find the pattern on her etsy or ravelry page.

A friend of mine wanted a special gift for her boyfriend this last Christmas, unfortunately they broke and i kept the pattern, it was very difficult to me since i dont have too much time knitting, but i started to practice. My borther saw the pattern and fell for it so i thought it could be a very nice n special gift for his bday (coming this July 10th) so i started to work.

Yarn its a baby acrylic yarn (dont know if he's allergic to wool  hahaha)
Needles are 3.0 mm DPN!!!!! but i put a bead in one tip because im always knitting in the subway so i wanted a small needle for not bugging people next to me. Hot glue gun works great.
Ziploc bag carried all the work the whole time, very useful since its raining the hell out in Mexico .
Cross stitch bobbins (dont know if thats the name for the white plastic mini cards) carried the right amount of yarn.

Took me 3 weeks to make them (every day, night and mornings )

Any comments are welcome!!

Gracias Smiley

That looks incredibly difficult (said the non-knitter)... very impressive!
