A Tiny Narwhal

Narwhal for Narwools 
Last week was Team Spirit Week for the Eat.Sleep.Knit Yarnathon and they offered a half star for every person who made a mascot.  (The team with the most stars at the end of the year wins.)  As a Narwool, I needed to make a narwhal, so I grabbed my trusty narwhal amigurmi pattern and decided to make a fingering weight one.  Normally this would have been a single evening's work, but I have to be very careful with crochet so I don't make my arm worse.  It took all week.  I did discover that working at a tiny gauge is easier than the bigger gauge of my giant granny square blanket, but I still had to limit my time spent crocheting.
I used some Dream in Color Jilly in Dream On for the body and some Malabrigo Mechita in Natural for the horn.  Just in case you were curious about the size difference between a fingering weight narwhal and a worsted weight narwhal, here's a picture with the new narwhal and the Emotionally Ambiguous Narwhal I made a couple of months ago.
