Where I work, I'm supervisor to 4 very hard-working temps at the moment whose jobs have just been put out to internal staff only to apply for. We've been encouraging them as best we can with chocolate, cakes and sweeties, but during a conversation a couple of weeks ago I happened to mention that I can knit (or crochet) just about anything. This led to the temps suggesting various animals for me to make as a challenge.
Well, here are the results :)
None of the patterns were my own, all can be found on Ravelry.
