Pasha the Penguin

pasha the penguin

Pasha the Penguin from knitty.

Pasha was not difficult to knit, but I learned the importance of swatching. Also, because I used very inexpensive acrylic yarn, blocking was not really helpful, but Ironing Pasha out before seaming him up helped a lot - especially in achieving a nice sheen...erm, which was intentional.

He has no feet, as you can see, and he never will. I gave him to my sister and told her that he can slide on his belly, as that's what penguins do. She insists that he needs feet to propel himself, but since the yellow yarn was so difficult to work with - I don't see that happening any time this year.
