Have you felted your penguin today?

I have. Yes, that is correct grammar. Look:

Either my knitting was too loose, or my yarn was to fine, but he had a bunch of holes where the stuffing showed through. It was making me crazy, so my son and I gave him a bath (after I carefully unstuffed him). Pinguino (thanks Dora) is recovering nicely.

For the second penguin I'm making (for the baby), I'm going to use 4.5mm instead of 4mm needles and felt him down even more. I'm loving the felted look (plus it means I can use my bamboo dpns instead of the monstrous aluminum straights).
