I got Rebecca Danger's 50 Yards of Fun and I am hooked.
I started with Button Bigfoot. I didn't have any fun fur so I knit him in leftover Gossamer (mohair/silk) and alpaca. He looks funny but he feels divine.
Then I knit a hippo. I know. He doesn't look like a hippo. The eye placement, the stuffing, it's all slightly off. He's still cute but everyone at my retreat thought he was a whale.
I have a Cat in Pajamas that's all done except its nose and a yak that needs ears and horns. Then on to a unicorn!
