Birds and a Caterpillar

I finished knitting this 3 bluebirds dishcloth last night.  It was from a German pattern.  I don't speak German, but it was very easy to follow.  Someone gave me a translation of the abbreviations, which helped a lot.  
R= Knit L= Purl and all odd numbered rows are knit, small Nupps (from the pattern): kfb (make 2 stitches out of one), turn, purl these 2, turn, k2tog, go on with your row.

I also got to test this very cute caterpillar amigurumi pattern recently.  The last few days have been a struggle to finish it, not because of the pattern but because of life.  It is a Christmas present for my youngest son, so for the last few days I could only work on it after he went to bed.  Now it is safely hidden until I can wrap it up.  He is just so cute!  I used the colors of The Very Hungry Caterpillar when making it.  It is a very easy pattern, and I recommend any of TBoutiqueCritters's patterns. Mine ended up being 19.5 inches long x about 5 inches wide.  I hope my son likes it.
