Snail's paces

Or should it be snail races?
Just how fast can a snail move? well, at a snail's pace I suppose-LOL! I just finished these two cuties this evening because my dolly wanted a snail for a pet and then she couldn't decide if she wanted a blue one or a green one so mommy had to make her one of each. Aren't they just the cutest little guys? They're about 2 1/2 inches tall and about 4 inches long. I used sport weight yarn and a size 1 steel hook. The eyes are 9mm safety eyes, the green ones were the only ones left in the right size. I suppose just plain black ones would have looked a bit better but I like these too. It's a free pattern that can be found here. It figures, mine turned out fatter. I don't know how I do that? too much stuffing I suppose. My stuff always looks "well fed". LOL. These make up so fast. a fun quickie project.
