Snuggles is all ready for his snowball fight!  If you are making Snuggles as a gift, try making a matching Knotted Headband with the left-over yarn from the scarf!  Snuggles the Penguin is also available as a charm through Oborocharms’ shop which can be found here.  Don’t forget to send me photos through facebook, twitter and e-mail!  Have lots of fun making Snuggles 🙂
