Sometimes when you need something really quickly it's best to stick to little things. And that is just what I did recently. I needed two gifts in a hurry. So I looked at my knitting books and I surfed the patterns on Ravelry and found just what I needed.
The first is Baby Bear from itty-bitty toys. I used some left over Noro Kureyon Sock yarn and 3.25mm circular needles.
The second is a seahorse knitted with half a skein of Anchor Magicline on 3.25mm circular needles.
Both toys are knitted in the round with a minimum of seeming and both knit up really quickly. I love not having to sew seams.
