Week 52: It begins and ends with a penguin.

I finished the very last hat in plenty of time to meet meet the year-deadline. Whew. I then spent the next 3 days trying to get Squeaker to leave the hat on long enough to take a picture.   Most of the time we wound up with something like this:
Finally, I was able to offer an attractive enough bribe for him to sit still for a couple of photos.
Crackers are amazing things. 

This hat turned out so cute. I wanted it to look very different from the first penguin hat and I think I succeeded. I love the floppy little penguin feet and I particularly adore the giant pom-pom. I also stuffed the belly just a teeny bit so it has a nice plump look to it. 
The hat didn't stay on terribly long, but the cracker covered baby was so cute I had to take more pictures.  

Take care,

Congrats Kate - job well done. You picked a good model too ;-) (he is really starting to look like you - I didn't see it before, but I really do now....) Did Robin tell you Maggie's newest obsession is her penguin bath toys? There's a mom and a baby and she carried them EVERYWHERE. All you have to say is "Where's Pengi?" and you get the biggest smile ever. I think she's channeling you :-)
