The Very Hungry (Knitted) Caterpillar

As I mentioned previously, I decided to knit a caterpillar for Timmy, modeled after Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I finished it sometime last week, and judging by how much Timmy has tried to eat it, I think he's going to enjoy the creature. I'm pretty happy with the finished product. Once I was finished, I realized an easier way to do the eyes, but oh well. The legs were kind of tricky to attach securely, so I'm prepared to re-attach them as they are eaten loved off.

I am making one for my niece for her birthday (along with a copy of the book) so it's on the needles yet again.
