I saw a zombie penguin stuffie here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=128150.0 and thought, what a great idea! As luck would have it, my MIL sent me Knitted Toys by Jean Greenhowe and it had a whole family of penguins. So I knitted up a zombie penguin!



He's about as tall as a postcard, so between 3 and 4 inches tall. I added some details, like a splash of blood on his chest, blood on his beak and flippers, and in his side I have a little hidden pocket where his guts go. Also, I knitted another penguin head, to be his victim.

http://theknittingdiva.com/penguin/index.htm  this is a gallery of in progress and finished pics so you can see what I did to him. I knitted him in Pattons Grace (the green and black) the white is also mercerized cotton, but the red and yellow are dk weight wool.

 Cheesy fair isle blood.

He's so cute I almost don't want to give him to his intinded recipient. But, he's rather fast to knit so I guess I could always make my own legion of zombie penguins...

I wanted to get a little music box to stuff in him, the kind you get for dolls? But since I appear to be completely lacking in the google dept. and my 2 local craft stores didn't have them, I couldn't.

A legion of zombie penguins? Sounds like a plan to me. Cutest zombie I've seen in a while.

oooooh Zombie penguines are destabalising my paradigms. Different universes are colapsing. I'm not handling this very well.
