This was my first attempt at knitting to a pattern. All my previous knitting had been scarves.
You can't really tell in this picture, but I used a navy blue and an off white for the body of this penguin. Every pattern I've seen says to use black and white, but in real life, penguins aren't black and white. If you ever see them in real life you will see that their back feathers are actually a very dark navy blue.
