What are you most proud of? Charlotte is the 1st project I have knitted continental style, so I'm pleased she didn't come out too wonky.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be prepared to become addicted to the wee ones! They are so much fun to make & you do laugh out loud. . . often. The thing is you just have to keep finding an excuse to make them. Charlotte is, in fact, the 2nd hippo I have made. (I have made as many elephants as well). Because it's now autumn in New Zealand Charlotte's sweater, however, is the 1st I have knit. I think it looks great on her, tho it is a little tight around her arms & makes them stick out! lol
