hoo knit an amigurumi owl?

Here is the amigurumi owl I knit for Sera. I followed a pattern I found in a book by Amy Gaines; Little Knitted Creatures. He only took about a week to put together and since he was done entirely with stocking stitch it wasn't even difficult! I had intended to make some more for friends but didn't get around to it in the end and got distracted with other projects (as usual).

The book is definitely suitable for beginner knitters and has many more adorable creatures. Knitting toys is so much more fun than knitting clothing if only because it takes a little while longer for kids to grow out of toys than clothes!
