Notes

2 Aug
Translated the pattern from Spanish with the help of Google Translate. Also, converting the pattern into the round.

Doing the piggie with US1. Honestly, I’d probably rather go for US0, but the only US0 DPNs I have are KP and I’m too spoiled by my HiyaHiya to think about using them for an entire project. I will, however, use the US0s for the parts of the pattern that the smaller needle sized is called for (which are basically the pink bits).

This is ridiculously cute. Olive does not seem to care about the rodent cuteness but Bitty rubbed on him, licked him and then tried to bite his little nose.

5 Aug
All I lack now are the front legs. That’s my goal today.

Done!

I have named him Gilly, short for Gilbert.
