Because it will take me half a year (or probably more) to get them to you.
I always get very flattered when someone asks me to make them something, and initially quite enthused to make it, but then I get stuck on a bit and the poor item sits languishing with all my other abandoned WIPs. With this poor moose the part I got stuck on was the sewing of the pieces together. Definitely the most horrid thing about amigurumi. When I finally did get around to it it didn't take that long and it turned out super. So super that Partner was lamenting the fact that I always give 'the good things' away. Ha!
I had wanted to go down to a park to take some photos, but ran out of time. Instead I utilised the weeds in my back yard. It works though, eh?
I'm also going to note how delighted recipient was with moose. In fact, I made it so recipient could give it away to someone else, but recipient is considering keeping it for herself! Which I have taken as a huge compliment to me!
Pattern: Moose. Very good pattern, just look at his little nobbly legs! I used coins in the hooves to keep the bottoms flat. gave the feet a bit of weight too which adds to the stability of this top-heavy creation. Googly eyes at the recipient's request, as the whole request was inspired by this card.
Yarn: Random acrylic for the most part, the brown is Panda Magnum Soft 8ply.
