I saw these guys on the "anny purls" blog a few weeks ago and immediately printed off the pattern from Knitty. When I needed a mail-friendly gift for a 3 year old boy (the recipient of "Sheldon" back in March) I knew they would be perfect. Anny's review of the pattern and the knitting - fast and fun - mirrors my feelings about this quick knit exactly.
Thanks Knitty and Anny!
I also really like the T'ika - especially since it's a fair trade yarn! With the remnants I'm trying out a grown up wash cloth version. Instead of "Grrr" maybe I'll call it "Ahhh".
I plan to check out the other colours available at my LYS on my next visit!
