You may not know this… but I have the cutest puppy in the entire world.* Really. The cutest.
Don’t believe me? Here’s a photo as proof:
Obviously, a puppy so cute is in need of a christmas present – and while it is technically before christmas, the surprise has already been ruined for her… as you’ll see below.
I had some bulky organic wool (from an ex who’s parents had an organic sheep farm) and I thought that a dog toy would be the perfect use for it… so I made her a sheepy…
It turned out pretty darn cute! The specifics:
Pattern: Felt Flock (Bev G.) – this is available as a fiber trends pattern, but I had the pattern in Donna Kooler’s Knitting Encyclopedia gifted to me by my sister a few years back.
Needles: Size 11 US plastic circulars that I got at an auction…
Mods: None. I’m really pretty thrilled with the pattern. I’d recommend it to others.
She loves the sheep! Want proof?
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope it’s a good one!
*This is actually my sister’s puppy – since I live in the residence halls at IU (in an apartment) I am not allowed to have puppies… But still, it’s like my puppy.
