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…
Yarn: Gift
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.

    Oh my word. This is going to sound weird, and I don’t care: I love her adorable puppy butt! Eee!

    The sheep is pretty cute too. What a lucky puppy.

    Oh, this brought back memories of my Manda a mixed cockapoo. Looks just like her. The sheep is adorable

    Too cute!! But I can’t be disloyal to my two pups, Napoleon & Caesar.

    I love the sheep you made me Nicole. Thank you so much. It is in my crib right now. She is very cozy to cuddle with. Love you!
