getting closer to knitting

I recently Crocheted this panda for my friend. She is moving to LA and has to give away her chinese hamsters since they are outlawed in California. I went with her to deliver the hamsters to their new home and surprised her with the panda afterwards. I am hoping it will help lessen her sadness from losing her pets, and it is legal in California!

I got the idea from the Spring/Summer '08 issue of Knit1. My plan was to follow their pattern but I ended up changing it completely. The only thing that is the same is the muzzle. I made the eye spots smaller and completely changed the legs, arms, ears, and tail. They said to make the head and body in two pieces, and sew them together. I hate sewing parts together so I just made it all in the round and made the head and body one piece. I just used yarn I had in my stash and buttons I had for the eyes and fiber fill I already total cost: super cheap!

I am very happy with how he turned out. Enjoy the insane orange color of my craft room in the background :)
