awwww, those fish are cute Lasandri! You should try the teeny little baby chicks too, they only take a few minutes and a little bit of yarn.

All the finished projects here make me glad I ordered this book. Everything so CUTE! 'Specially the kitten, lol. I was thinking of making one with the plastic cat eyes but didn't know how it would turn out, so I didn't want to order them until I knew... yay, now I know!

Those who have made the penguin... did anyone else have trouble getting it to line up? Or did I just screw up somewhere along the line? I'm trying to join the belly part to the body, but the belly seems just too small! I'll be finished shortly, though, and I will post pictures when I'm done... til then, any advice would be greatly appreciated!

What was that for?! Chickens are not your brethren!

It's a bit tricky getting the penguin to line up... makes it a pretty difficult project I thought. What I did was pin the top triangle of the white part to the top of the black and then pin the straight parts at the bottom together. When you look there's an angle on the white and the black part a few inches up from the bottom, so I pinned that part together too. Then I just seamed so that each of the pins would line up, it's not really stitch for stitch, but it works. I hope that makes any sense at all Smiley
Good luck, it's pretty cute once it's finished, but definitely takes some persistance in the finishing department.

Sorry I've been absent! Can't wait to chill with you all again Smiley
Anyone want to swap alphabet ATCs?

I tried knitting the baby chick on the only needles I had with me--twos--and it ended up being so tiny that you couldn't tell what it was. It was still kind of a cute little nugget-type thing, though.

Which projects in this book, besides the goldfish and chicks, do you guys think are the quickest?

Hello everyone. I'm trying to seam the adult pig and am having difficulty. did anyone else have trouble seaming the toys? (I've had similar trouble when i knitted the snake and spider monkey from the book).  Any tips? or should i just say screw it? i can't get my seam to be flat, if that makes any sense.

thanks in advance.

The dolphin.  It took me three hours, tops.

These are so cool!
I love knitting toys.
Even though I've only knit one... It was great.  Tongue
