I also started Maple the Moose over the weekend; I am nearly done with the second main body piece! I love crocheting with singly-ply yarns such as Malabrigo's Merino Worsted, and this particular colorway - Cognac - is working up beautifully.
On a different note, I've come across some really great photos this week via various internet wormholes that it would be criminal not to share here. You can see even more unbearably cute animal photos on my Awesome Animals Pinterest board if you dare!
