I love the look of knitted toys, especially animals, but don't have the patience for all that sewing and stuffing. Some of the patterns on this page could tempt me though. I particularly like the elephants.
A couple of years back my son wanted an armadillo as a pet. They aren't native to Australia and we can't legally keep them as pets so I joked I would knit him one if I could find a pattern. There truly is a pattern for everything!
And check out the monkey balaclava at the bottom In The Loop's page. I'm thinking that might be a good one for next Halloween!
