FO - Flamingo

Meet Pink:

Pattern: 221x Flamingo Beach Party by Fiber Trends
Yarn: Cascade 220 Wool and Berocco Swizzle Bright
Needle: size 10.5

Observations: The eyelash yarn ran out on one of the breasts (you can see it if you look closely enough) and I found later that there was an instruction hidden in the back to stop at row 38 or 39 and then devide the eyelash yarn. Just beware. Also, the legs are written to be knit flat and sewn up later on. One of my legs is sewn, the other is knit in the round. The only way I can tell the difference it to actually squeeze the legs to figure it out.

M helped me stuff the body. She was so cute and very methodical in helping me. I'm going to have to have her help me out more often.
