        I have just finished the head of the collie Michelle but I’ve been out all morning so progress is slow! I’d love to knit your shar pei but I’m useless at patterns!

      Well actually Hazel you were the one who mentioned the great Dane,not me so she's only going to think you are mad.lol.😂😂😂maybe I should ask her for a shar pei pattern(you know the dogs with all the rolls of skin) then she will think I'm mad as well.see that's what friends are for.😉😉lol.if she does design a shar pei you're knitting it not me.hee hee.😊😊 and I don't care if you offer me homemade bikkies and a cuppa.lol

        🤔 I thought you mentioned the Great Dane first but I did ask if there was any chance! I’m not sure how you’d knit a Shar Pei’s wrinkles but I’d give it a go! Paddy thinks I can knit the collie in an instant & get him lunch too, so I could knit wrinkles!

        I’m loving the idea of homemade bikes Michelle! I’m so glad that Fritzie meets your standards for a Schnauzers musch - I tried doing two tones of grey for authenticity. Amanda has done a pug pattern but she’ll think we’re mad wanting a Great Dane!

      Mr Basil, my dog, says that you need to knit a pug to add to your collection!

        I knitted a pug for Quinn, but I’m always up to knit another! Paddy has asked me to knit the border collie first!

        Dianne, I’m glad you like Fritzie; Paddy hasn’t seen him yet so I don’t know if he’ll go with my choice of name 😋
