Knitted Toy

I've started and finished my first One Day Knitting Project!!!

I used the free Teeny Tiny Knitted Toys pattern by Little Cotton Rabbits as found on Ravelry .

I intended to make a rabbit, and did follow the stitch count instructions, but the ears wound up looking like a mouse or pig's ears, so I've changed my mind and made this a "Gloomy Day Piglet".

I was thinking of making a rabbit for Frank and a bear for Jack for while I'm gone in Cheyenne... this one took me about four hours, in part because I knitted the limbs into the body as I went instead of stitching them on at the end. I really do want to make a rabbit, so I'm sure I'll be doing it again soon...
