Nautie, Nautie...

I found a link to the pattern for this bugger somewhere (no idea where, don't remember) It's a nautilus! How cool is that?

I didn't want to use anything of the "fancy" yarn variety since I didn't really know what I was doing. So I went with the old reliable Caron Simply Soft (grape & orchid for the shell, off white for the face) I followed the pattern pretty much exactly, I used #6 needles instead of #4 (there's a UFO on my #4's at the moment) I also had a hard time curling the thing as I went. So I made it straight and then curled it after it was all knitted up. Much easier!

The shell part is about 5.5" across, the face adds another couple inches to that.

I had fun making it. I managed to conquer dpn's! Woot! I kinda like making toy type things I think...
