Knitted Dachshund Toy
 
2 Attachment(s)
This is a knitted Dachshund from "Knit Your Own Dog," a book a friend bought for me.

I just used some leftover sock yarn, figuring I'd try the Dachshund since it would be easily recognizable even if he was done in multicolor yarn and not in true dog colors!

The knitting wasn't bad, but the sewing up was awful. My guy came out a bit crooked as you can see in the belly picture. All my non-knitting friends seem to love him but I get annoyed when things don't turn out perfectly!

The book is really cute, but right now I don't have plans to make any more of them. The one good thing about this project was that it was small - perfect for traveling or plane knitting.

Well, very cute and already guarding your calculator. What a dog!

I hate the sewing part, too, which is why I have a very cute bear all crocheted up and stuffed and still lying around in pieces (thankfully, very small pieces, so he doesn't take up much room).

At any rate, your dog is adorable--even with his not quite straight legs. If you leave him standing up, no one will notice.

Cute doggie and I agree with Salmonmac -- we should overlook his shortcomings because of the great service :)

I would knit toys but the sewing is off putting. Congrats on finishing it!

If you'd experienced the rampant calculator stealing that goes on where I work, you'd know how valuable this calculator-guarding dog will be! :) That's why my initials are on mine - when someone swipes it I can catch them! :mrgreen:
