For any keen knitters – I have posted the pattern on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/knitted-galaxy-zoo-logo
I’d love to see your comments on it if you end up making it. My first attempt at writing a pattern actually!
And the penguin is a pattern I found on Ravelry too. 🙂 It’s the Ball Penguin: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/klmasters/ball-penguin
