A grandma's best friend!

My Grandparents are huge dog lovers and have always had Wire-haired Fox Terriers, so when I saw this Best in Show knit your own dog, I knew it would make a great Christmas present. 

Now, only being a novice knitter I thought he might be a bit of a challenge but surprisingly I found it hugely enjoyable and benefited from learning some new stitches and techniques. Although he's not perfect its what makes him individual and I'm pretty proud of the results!



 

There are a wonderful collection on the website and I do quite fancy having another go but which to choose?! I'd also like to see if I could adapt the patten to produce a version more akin to Jack's (my Grandparents actual dog) colouring and patternation but think I'd need a bit more practice first... maybe even with a cat as unfortunately (despite many hints!) there was no kitten hiding in my stocking this year!
