Meet Doug

My friend Kate recently got a new puppy, and what a pup he is!! Here's the picture she took of him.






At first, I thought he might like to be knitted into a sock in an intarsia design. Never mind that I've never done intarsia. I figured it'd be a chance to learn. Here's the chart I made for that.

When I had about a dozen tiny skeins of yarn all flipping around my knitting, I decided (as usual) I'd started too big. Simplify! Simplify! (When will I learn?)

Back to the drawing board. With the new direction that felt appliqué took me, I thought maybe what Doug really wanted to be was a mitten.


Yes. I really think Doug wanted to be a mitten after all.

  1. Wow, he is wonderful! I tried to show him the picture but he got distracted (squirrel!), but he would be so pleased to see himself as a mitten.
