A friend of mine was having a birthday, and the minute I saw this pattern I knew I had to make it for her! Of course, I finished it last-minute so didn't get great pictures, but I love it - it's a penguin, in a skirt and crown, holding a balloon. Love it!
Yarn: Mostly Wool of the Andes Sport
Timeframe: September 7 - 12, 2015
Mods: I did the round things (head and balloon) in the round and knit the skirt only as long as I had yarn. More mods were done on the balloon, see the Ravelry page for more info.
