I worked the background of the cuff with "Holly" in a diagonal mosaic stitch, which is easy to compensate around the letters of the name.
Like the other penguin, this one has the white sections stitched with two strands of Medici. I added eyes in Smyrna crosses with DMC #5 perle cotton #310. Using Silk & Ivory "Pumpkin," I worked the beak in an upright gobelin stitch and the flippers in a satin stitch. Now I have a little penguin face peering at me as I stitch the rest of the mini-sock!
