My First Knitted Rainbow Baby

This is my first Rainbow Baby, made from Jean Greenhowe's pattern: www.jeangreenhowe.com/Images/Rainbow_Babies.pdf -
I used number two needles and worsted weight yarn, and at first it was difficult to knit with that thicker yarn on those thinner needles, but I was pleased with the finished result. I might try using number 3 (US) needles next time, but I DID get used to the twos. The main yarn in this toy was gleaned from a thrift store vest I unraveled.
Hi, Readers. I am active in Habitat for Humanity Grays Harbor, our local Habitat group. It is so important for people to have a decent home! I have started a Habitat Fundraising Group called Knitters, Quilters, & Doll-ers for Haiti Habitat:

If you'd like to help me raise enough $ for one house in Haiti ($2000-3000), go to the link above and donate what you can. Please pass this on; maybe we can build two houses!
