I would highly recommend this pattern, I wouldn't recommend trying to do it in a week, especially when you can only knit at night!
It's a good size, a small pillow for a child's bed. The finished rocket is about 40cm tall (including the fins) and the astronaut about 15cm tall. I did consider trying to do the pattern in the round, however I decided to knit as it was written, which I did regret when it came to sewing it up! It took a while, however I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.

buttons for buttons on the space suit
|I love the pocket|
I've not decided which pattern I will attempt next. However reading over all the patterns, it would appear I didn't chose the most difficult one first...
