Yes! This is my second real project with knitting. I love this little guy! i used this pattern, http://mochimochiland.com/weblog/?p=259

His name is Antoine Coeur DesChanel. he is from St-Brieuc, France. He likes to send letters via snail mail and play pin the goo on the slug. He like to swim across the La Manche to Great Britain and eat fish and chips. He likes to listen to Radiohead and watch the stars and thinking about snail aliens. He dreams about being a famous chef in Paris, hey that Rat did it alright. He would very much like it if he could cross the Ocean Atlantique and meet some American snails, he hears that American's don't like to eat snails as much, so maybe he would find someone to settle down with and make a family. He's already lost four girlfirends to humans.

He is cute, I love the way his snail curls, tell him if he is in britain to get his fish 'n' chips from the sea-side - they always taste the best from there.

Looking for poly-clay earrings: one bacon, one fried egg. Also, a mishmash of red/orange/gold bracelets--beaded, braided, bangles, whatever! If you have the supplies, let's talk! (Please?) I'll swap all kinds of things in return!
