This is being knit as a baby gift for one of the guys who works for me: he’s about to become daddy to a wee baby boy.
A slow start, as I am using this for lunchtime knitting and I invariably get interrupted 10 minutes into my lunch break with work-related stuff. Such is life.
I used Judy’s Magic Cast-on for a closed start to the project rather than casting on and joining into a circle. Worked great!
After Round 50 on the body I put the stitches on a holder and worked the tail, figuring it would be easier to knit while the body wasn’t stuffed. I then knit the arms and legs, and sewed the legs on before stuffing.
I also sewed the arms on before knitting the head.
