Do you remember all the way back to January 10? I wrote about Lion Brand Yarn‘s catalog and some other things including the fact that a friend of Mike’s wanted a crocheted version of his dog. I finished that dog. She is so cute.
I used three different strands of Lion Brand Yarn to get the sturdiness and fuzziness that I wanted to create to emulate the real dog. I worked with two strands of the fake fur and one of chenille. This dog is so soft and squishy, you can’t help but wanting to hug her. I hope he likes her. My dog Mickey wants to meet her, but I don’t trust him, he loves to shred and I’d hate to see all my work in pieces covered with dog slobber. So when I walk through the house with this creation I hold her way up above my head. It looks like I’m doing some kind of tribal honorific march. All hail the great fuzzy dog!
