1) I don't like sewing so putting on felted eyes was not an option for me
2) I didn't think buttons would look right
3) The cow's smile does not belong on it's nose!
4) I love breaking the rules.
I would not do this pattern again unless a child of mine begged me on hands and knees with tears. The pattern was a lot of guess
work (I think I need to read up on intarsia before I do more of this type of pattern) and I'm not sure I did it correctly. The extra bits knit up really fast, but the body took some time, I had to really pay
attention to what I was doing!
I'm giving it to Jenna this afternoon. I wrapped it in Christmas paper since technically it's supposed to be a Christmas Present.
