Socrates!

Miranda surprised me with a request for one more gift for one of her favorite teachers.  She asked if I could make a doll in the likeness of Socrates. Although I couldn't find a pattern for one, I think I did a pretty good job of modifying a standard amigurumi figure to make look like the famous Greek philosopher.
 
I had to completely wing it on the clothes, but I'm really pleased with how he turned out.  Now I just have to resist the urge to create *all* of the famous philosophers!  Nietzsche, Bietzsche!
