Wrap-me-up Puppy

Photobucket

I finished knitting up this little guy just in time for a birthday party for Luke's best bud.

The pattern (from Susan Anderson's Itty Bitty Toys) calls for a knitted blanket for the puppy. I sewed a little blanket for him instead. It's 6 inches square. One side is white flannel; the other is a square of David Walker's Oh Boy fabric.

I followed the original pattern for the little bobble-and-loop closure. I hope it holds up to a 3-year-old! Luke followed the puppy's progress carefully and has requested one for his birthday too. I suppose I can accommodate that...

So very cute Katie! Maybe I should make Alex one of these since he keeps begging for a dog...What, who say a 28 year old man can't have a little knitted puppy?

That is so cute! It looks like the kind of dog that is going to go everywhere with his new owner and will get lots of love!

Speaking for the birthday boy, I have to say he LOVES his puppy! He sleeps with it. It's got to be one of the cutest things ever!
