Too cute to stick pins into.
A combination of my tendency to anthropomorphize and the fact that the step-kid said "Awww, how cute!" is seriously dampening my vindictive spirit. I think this will be a present for a friend who will appreciate it for its mixed messages.
I decided to use white so the stuffing wouldn't show through... mostly because I didn't want to have to worry about knitting tightly on my Brittany double points. I used Brown Sheep's Lamb's Pride Worsted Superwash for the body, a thicker mystery yarn for the heart and thinner black yarn for the eyes and mouth.
Come to think of it - maybe he wouldn't be so darn cute if he didn't have that slight smile on his face?
I posted after Aurora - her post is even in my picture, but apparently it's tomorrow already in Australia! Edited to add: Following Rain's example, I've tweaked my time to put me in the right place.
