Amigurumi Robot -- Thanks Rachel of CrochetSpot!

This is my first REAL amigurumi. By real, I mean presentable. The first one I made was $#!+. Literally. I made amigurumi poo.

Exhibit A: Paraplegic, Faceless Robot

Now this robot is a gift for my officemate Paolo... He very generously agreed to make over my seller site at in exchange for this. =) I made it in his color choice. The pattern was originally in yellow and black. I followed all the directions to the letter, save for the face. Who knew that would be the most difficult part? Considering that it's the part of the project that uses up the least amount of yarn.

Doesn't he look like Shrek's Gingerbread Man? I love him. =)

Paolo loved it, and baptized him Swarley. I said that I thought the name sounded like a drunk pirate who loves to swear. And how much I wanted to make an eyepatch for him. =)
