Panda and cushion

Just thought I'd share a couple of pics of my knitting projects. I completed the panda yesterday. It's the first toy I've ever made, so it's far from perfect. The stitching needs tidying up a bit, but I don't think it's too bad a first effort.

I made the cushion a few days ago, using a fur effect eyelash yarn which was on special offer in the local Wilkinson store. One down, three to go. The yarn looks pretty, but it's not very nice to knit with. And woe betide anyone who drops a stitch - all that fuzz makes it nigh on impossible to find and recover.

Oh well, I've just started a fluffy little white seal in mohair, which I picked up cheap in the market. It's also not much fun to work with, but hopefully, the finished result will look pretty.

Thanks, both. The panda is my substitute puppy at the moment, LOL.
