Notes

Loving it so far. Knit most of it during our NYC trip.

6/20: Need to make the ears and back paws. And the face. I have been doubtful about some of the sections I have to seam together, but it has worked out fine after stuffing. I need to sew the front of the head onto the neck still.

6/23: Done! I embroidered the eyes and nose on with black yarn. His front legs aren’t very sturdy, he kind of falls forward. I think I’ll sew the fish into his mouth. I’m giving the otter to a little kid, so I don’t want to worry about choking. I also left off the whiskers, though I think they look cute. I used Madtosh Pashmina in the Tosh Loves Stephen colorway for the fish.
