What are you most proud of? I like the little girly color, and I think I did a good job of capturing the character of Susan's design.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the alternative cast-on method, it's less confusing...and redo the face as many times as you need to get it just the right way. Susan is right, the face makes all the difference. I took out my eyes completely after the first completion, then did the nose, then restitched the eyes, doing one of them twice again. Not that big of a deal, and it was worth the redo. Oh! And I used a simple wooden ruler to wrap the pom-poms.

That's one of the most adorable animals I've seen. It looks huge! I'm sure your granddaughter will love it.

Wow. Thanks, so much! I really appreciate that! It's really just about 14 inches tall sitting down.
