I haven't ever really made any knitted toys (I've never really had that much of an interest in it), but I just came across this one and added it to my queue. It cracked me up. I need to make it and set it on my desk at work to remind me to lighten up when I'm having a stressful day.
Crazy Kiwi Bird
I am a true blue KIWI, and I just love the pattern. I have printed it off and will make it for my neices baby boy, Bryson. The family live in Australia now so it will be a wonderful reminder of home.
