here is a corgi dog that i knit for a good friend for his birthday.  he really wants a corgi, but doesn't want all the work that comes along with a dog, so i figured i would whip one up for him!  i'm very proud of how he came out:
here's the angle shot:

and from the side:


i couldn't really find a pattern i liked so i made it up!  yay!  first knitting without a pattern!  the tie was a decoration on a present he got from someone else, and it just happened to fit perfectly on the dog!  serendipity, i tell ya!i used pantons (?) chacha or something like that and size 8 dpns.  whaddya guys think?
