Curse you Perry the Platypus!

I have decided to take the plunge into more complicated knitting and am trying my hands at this pattern Linky

So far Perry has a body and 4 paws. Did I ever mention I am not a fan of knitting in the round, particularly with small things (say, 12 sts?). I managed to make his paws despite the fact I had to restart them a few times, and had never turned a heel or knit a sock ever. I was quite proud of his first little misshaped paw, holding it up and thinking "ha! Showed you!" to the knitting snob who had told me socks were complicated and too hard to learn on my own.

He is coming along slowly, but I have been lazy in my knitting. I hope to have him done soon. I've learned a few new techniques like right twist, three needle bind off (ugh!), provisional cast on and picking up stitches. So he's a learning experience for sure.

And in case you don't know who Perry is, he's from a show called Phineas and Ferb. Perry is the boy's pet platypus who is also a secret agent.

The tail comes next, but for now, it's bedtime.

Now with MORE editing! Perry's progress...
