FO Friday: Panda Puppet!

Today's FO project is something I started to as part of two yearlong endeavors: destashing and using patterns from books that I already own. I suppose a third goal could also be added to this list - knitting projects from that dastardly Ravelry queue! If it gives you any sort of context, I originally queued this pattern in December of 2009. Oh my.

I had some leftover black and white yarn from recent projects, enough to make just one puppet. Look how cute he turned out! The pattern is from Susan B. Anderson's Itty Bitty Toys. It's got a few fiddly bits (by which I mean, more finishing than the average stuffy), but it's a well-written and easy to follow. There is a bit of errata - the instructions for the eye patches were omitted from the book, but you can find them easily here on the Ravelry pattern page. Works for me!

Thanks for stopping by this week - for more FO Friday inspiration, visit the Tami's Amis blog

Have a crafty weekend!


  1. He is the cutest panda!!

    Here's my FO:

  2. What a sweet Panda! The MKAL I am joining is Fall Mystery Shawl I am not a Westknit fan, too much of the same with little tweaks to make them appear different. I think his intarsia theme is bloated at this point. I prefer the lace style shawls. But do I really need another? LOL
