Need to make for art project, charms HW

8/11/09 - Started this, making the stripey version (and the horned version, though I can’t tell which set of instructions to use from the pattern, so I plan on using a lifeline and trying them both out, if need be). Instead of breaking the yarn for stripes, I’m just carrying it. Much easier, less ends to weave in.

9/11/09 - One leg left. This little guy is adorable, and knits up so quickly!

10/11/09 - Done! I did it sort of atypically, as in, not exactly in the order of the directions. I did the stripey and pointy ears variations. I knit the main body/head/ears part, grafted the top of the head together, picked up side sts and knitted both arms (the ends of which I stuffed then grafted, no casting off), embroidered eyes, stuffed the body, grafted the bottom together, picked up sts for the legs, knitted the legs, then stuffed and grafted together the legs. Done!
