Moo twoo!

A little while ago (a little over a year actually!), a good friend of mine gifted me this book as a thankyou present – I crochetted a border on a little baby’s blanket she had knitted.

Well, I was a little excited, but a very large bit hesitant. Those little doggies did not look easy to knit!

But last summer holidays I thought I’d give it a go. And it was really not so hard – each individual leg, or arm, or torso – as long as I didn’t look too far ahead!

Eventually I had all the pieces, and turned over the page to see about putting Moo Two together. Well, that was a surprise – a whole page of joining-together instructions – eeeeek! Luckily, as explained here, I have a wonderful Mother-in-Law 😀

Isn’t she adorable? … and see how the real Moo has that little white patch over her left eye?

Well, Moo Two does too!

  1. so cute! One day when we were feeling sad about Raymond running away I was at the library thinking of him and pulled out the same book but knitting cats and there was a siamese on the front cover, it made me smile, but I’m not sure if I could knit one!
    Love moo two :O)

    • Thankyou for your lovely comment. I was so sad when Raymond left for his Next Big Adventure. I did as you asked and sent lots of good thoughts out into the universe for him. I have seen the Knitting Cats book too – some amazing yarns they’ve used to get the right looks.

  2. Aww, the white detail makes it so perfect! I was given this book and the cat version as gifts, but I feel the exact same way you did. They’re adorable, but look so fiddly. I’ve never made a toy that came out like the picture. Yours did though, so I might have to give this book a shot.
