I used this pattern by Lion Brand Yarn, found on (where else) Ravelry.I made the tail but didn't attach is as I thought it looked a bit out of proportion. I chose to embroider closed eyes as I thought when the kid was cuddled up with it, it would be sweet if they were both asleep. I like making amigurumi as they're so cute, as well as relatively quick and quite impressive (to non-yarncrafters) but they do necessitate attaching lots of little bits and pieces - arms, legs etc - which is a bore. Though qith a good film on tv and a cold drink in your glass, it's not so bad.
A final shot with my other craft of the week - I've cast on the second sock. Watch this space for progress.
Have a great week everyone. I'm planning to finish my laboratory work this week - wish me luck.
