Westie Puppy, In Loving Memory of Melvin

What are you most proud of? I had two westies growing up in my home, but both have since crossed the veil of life. For a Christmas gift, to remember Melvin and Gibson, I knitted this puppy for my Mother. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Although I felt strangely like a taxidermist, the final product will make your loved one's heart warm in loving memory of an old family member.

Q&A with Cara Michelle

Scheri Manson asked:
He is adorable. Bet your mom loves him :-D
Cara Michelle answered:
Scheri, so sorry for the extra late response, Craftsy didn't notify me of it! My mom still has this puppy sitting on the rocker in the living room. He's become an active member of her family!
Meghan Criss asked:
This is so cute! I'd never thought of knitting this kind of item till I saw these patterns and then my daughter saw them....and wants one....this is adorable. Well done! Thanks for posting!
Cara Michelle answered:
Meghan, if you can increase/decrease, you'll be able to make toys! Your daughter would feel so special! The hardest part is working with the long eyelash yarn.
