Skinny legs are not always a good thing.

Almost finished with my pal, Ollie the Ostrich. All the pieces are knitted (with the exception of the feet) and are ready for stuffing and assembly. I'm having fun knitting it all.

...but can I just say that sewing the seams to the legs and neck were a great, big, sharp pain in the ass? The legs and neck cannot be sewn inside out because they're too long and thin to turn right side out again after they're sewn. I had to do it on the right side of the pieces, practically blindly, using the mattress stitch. Tedious beyond words.
