Puppy Love

 I have been adding to my crocheting skills by learning to crochet Amigurumi animals. I ordered a crochet book from Annie's Attic that has small crocheted animals (remember my bunny) made with size 10 crochet thread. I thought just for the heck of it I would try using yarn and a bigger hook. The first time I tried it I did another bunny, my oldest liked it so much I can't get it away from her long enough to take a picture! A couple days ago I decided to try out a different animal and made this cute puppy...

 He worked up quite quickly, I had all the body parts (that sounds so morbid) done within an hr, it took about another hr to sew him together. I finished him up last night by embroidering his eyes and mouth. My kids love this little guy and are very sad I have decided to put him on my etsy shop. Little do they know they are each getting a Amigurumi for Easter!
