I actually knit this way back in April for my husband's birthday. I just forgot to get a photo of it at the time. It sits on his desk at work. So I had to have him bring it home for said photo.
It is a bit of an inside joke and probably pretty silly. It's a blue-footed booby (rav link). He says it's nice to have a booby at work. Also when one of the guys is having a bad day he asks them if they want to hold his booby. I know it is silly, but that's the strange sense of humor my husband has. Which is part of the reason I love him so very much. I knew he would love this little guy, and I loved making him. It is knit out of leftover stash of Cascade 220 and Eco wool. The pattern is one of the birds in Feathers by Knitting at Knoon.
