Penguin Appropriate Weather

I am working on this as a silly gift for a friend.  Its a penguin pillow ... today is snowing pretty good, seems very appropriate weather to be knitting on a penguin.


I'm thinking I might want to block these bottom pieces before seaming though ...


I debated blocking the separate pieces before beginning knitting in the round, but I didn't want to stop knitting for a day or two to do it.  If I continue up and finish the top, I can block the bottom and side seams while knitting on the other pieces (wings, feet, etc.).  I would like this to be done by 2/21 when we have plans to get together with this couple.
