Ed the Explorer

Here is a picture of Ed the Explorer.  He is from Laura Long's book, "Knitted Toy Travels":

He took a long time to knit and he is about 18-20 inches.    The hair I ended up ripping out and trying again.  I found it easier to use a thinner yarn for the hair.. it doesn't puff  up as much and looks more natural.    I plan on making him a winter coat, hat, and mittens.
