Bring a snail into your life!

Meet Brian, the first knitted amigurumi I have made from Hansi's book. Brian loves grass, strawberries*, reading the paper when traveling by train, and eating bratwurst. But he does not like when I went to see the burning of the Boogg, he shyed away in the backpack, insisting we should go home at once. He is now guarding the sofa, as there has been far to much sun recently for a respectable snail to go out.

Brian was a lovely knit, and the only mod I made was to not stripe the shell, but used a mixed-colour yarn instead.

Want a snail in your life too? Well check this out: the pattern is available for free here. It is fast and uses up scraps of yarn...go on, make your own, you know you want to!

* No strawberries were harmed in the making of this post. Much to Brian's disappointment, they are not yet in season!
