(just eyes and nose). Much better:
I used the same white yarn as I did for the tips of Henry’s paws. The body/legs are knit in one piece, then you knit the four other pieces (2 ears and 2 arms which are identical). Put some stuffing in, sew the arms/ears on, put its face on.
I’m going to have a really, really hard time giving these two up for the greyhound auction.
His mugshot – with his new eyes and nose:
While I don’t think I’m a convert to knitting a lot of toys, I absolutely love the finished product. I think it was worth all the fiddly diddly aggravation of sewing/stuffing/assembling it.
