Narwhal

Narwhal

March 31, 2010

I knit the narwhal *exactly* to pattern and he ended up 15" long, including tusk.  It was hard to poke the chopstick into the fibrefill to support the tusk but I was eventually able to make a hole by poking my double pointed needles in first.  The chopstick was awfully long so I cut a couple of inches off the thick end. 

I embroidered the eyes on using a small bit of dark grey sock yarn.  The angora sweater yarn has so far provided Drop Chicken and this narwhal and there's still lots left!
