I saw this knitting pattern at the end of November and thought he would make a great present for my mum, who loves toys. I thought I'd just have time to make him if all the wool came quickly, and I would have if I hadn't crushed my finger. This stopped all knitting and crochet and lots of other things for about 2 weeks and meant there was no way to finish him in time for the big day.
Flu after Christmas had me wondering if I would ever finish him, but here he is all done. I found the pattern on LoveKnitting by Pretty Little Sheep, and it was really easy to follow and put together. He's a lovely lad, a bit bigger than I was expecting, but Mum really loved him, as did my sister and Milo.
It was also my first go at moss stitch for his scarf - what an easy stitch to do and looks really good.
So all in all a big success.

Earlier this year I found a pattern for a tiny knitted dog. Once I'd made one I wanted to make more, and as my sister had a tiny black dog wouldn't it make the perfect Christmas gift?
I love making tiny things like this. Really quick to make and fun too. Who doesn't want a dog they can keep in their pocket?
