Finger puppet

This is my newest knitted project, a finger puppet. She's being sent as a thank you gift to an extremely special person.
I love knitted projects that only take a couple of hours to whip up. She was fun to make. I've never had to increase stitches before and I was able to figure it out. I'm always excited when I can do things by following a diagram. That's always been difficult for me. The eyes look like google eyes in the picture, but they're actually small bits of felt. It's "sew" hard sewing such itty bitty pieces of felt. It just falls apart when you stick the needle through.
For those of you waiting for your amazing buttons to come to you, I'm still waiting on a couple of people to send theirs in...you know who you are! I promise it's worth the wait, these are amazing!!
