Rewarding and Simple to Knit

....that's how the dachshund is described in the knitting book Best In Show.
And he was.

Have you seen the book? It's not new but I found it at a bargain price so snapped it up.
He is supposed to have a knitted collar but I couldn't resist giving him a neckerchief made from a scrap of liberty fabric.
You may notice that the book he is standing on isn't knit your own dog but knit your own cat. That was a bargain price too and I don't think my own cat is impressed that I decided to knit a dog before a cat. Perhaps I should knit a cat next it will sure be less trouble than the real life version and a whole lot quieter.

I'm nominating this little chap as my September Monthly Make.

He is very cool and the Liberty suits him to a tee. Have you started the cat yet?

he's gorgeous! I love the soft felty looking wool you did him in, bet he feels lovely. So, who is next, then? and is the cat book worth getting too?

He's very sweet and a lot less trouble that his cousin The Real Thing, I bet. I love the neckercheif 0 much more classy than a scarf. :)
