FO: Pile-able Pups

The pups are done!  I like them way better now that they’re finished.  The cuteness factor grows exponentially in the final minutes of knitting.IMG_7803I used the tutorials on the Mochimochi Land website to sew on the arms and legs at an angle.  Look how perky those tails are:IMG_7804 I bought two 50 gram balls of each color yarn, and I needed both – but not much of the second ball.  I got the entire body plus 2 legs out of the first ball.  So if you have more than one but less than two balls, you might have enough.

By the way, this is Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Avocado, Papaya Heather, and Chestnut. 

I’ll incorporate the leftovers in my Fabulous Fair Isle Felted Fun Bag, which has grown a bit since this last photo.  I’ll share it again soon!IMG_7702

I'm totally going to make some. What makes the tails so perky?

And you're stranded bag is looking awesome. Can't wait to see what it looks like all felted up.

The tails are perky because I picked up the stitches for mattress stitch a few rows further down the tail on the top of the dog. There is a tutorial on the Mochimochi Land website - scroll down to the part titled "Sewing on a Limb (at an angle)"
