This is the beginning of my Christmas knitting -- with 6 grandchildren (who all love knitted sweaters, afghans, toys, etc), I have to get started early.
I loved the woobie zebra that Jan in CA posted last month, but I wanted to do a free pattern. I knitted the Lamb Lovie (http://www.petitepurls.com/Summer11/summer2011_p_lovey.html), and then decided that it would be worth it to buy the "woobie" patterns. I have now finished two puppy woobies, and I love the pattern. I only had to buy one skein of yarn for all three. I thought I had enough red for the border, but I didn't. (I couldn't believe how much yarn it took for the borders.) The rest was left-overs in my stash. I am going to knit a striped kitty cat next.
Here are the pictures:
