Birthday + Broke = Inspiration

First, #3 won. The person who inspired the making of a tiger liked that one best as well so ... here he is:

 So Monday was my friends birthday. Unfortunately I rarely leave the house here, and when I do it's usually only for an hour or two tops so it's very hard to shop for that perfect gift. Even if I could afford THE perfect gift. And for some people...that's just way out of my budget. Jo-anne is one such person. SO....I decided to try and put my feeble knitting skill to work and make her something special. She is a huge Sharpei lover. Here's a pic of her old dog. Such a cuddly ball of inspiration! Here's the result:

Ok, this was an in-progress shot. Only one leg attached and no tail yet. I forgot to take a closeup finished pic....because the lil guy wanted to go explore. Look below for his adventures.

Wandering about in the backyard and checking out some of the flowers.

He then climbed to the top of this balloon leaf plant. I know that's not the real name of it, but that's how I always refer to it. I loved making those balloons when I was a kid :D Actually....I still love making those balloons......

Finally...he made a friend out of one of my tree gnomes! That was a long climb for such a lil puppy.

I sure hope she likes him. *Cue nervous knitter anxiety*.
