Anyway. This is my gift to our family doctor to thank him for bringing our baby girl safely into the world two weeks ago. (More about her soon. I just need to finish that blasted baby blanket, then I'll reveal my two creations at once!)
I recognize that this is a really weird thing to give to the person who delivered our child. A gift card to a nice restaurant probably would have been a more mature, sensible option. But my doctor had made nice comments about my knitting before (I had worked on the baby's blanket in his waiting room for several weeks and he was curious about my knitting obsession) (more likely scenario: he's just a nice guy who was making conversation) so I thought I'd make a little toy for his two kids. Because what good is a knitting obsession if not to shower the world with hand knit squishies?
This was a really satisfying knit. It came together quickly. The pattern was interesting but simple.
