George the Dog, from Louise Crowther’s Knitted Animal Friends has been coming along fairly well. I feel like it’s taking me longer than Charlotte the Fox did, but that could be because I did all the knitting for George before putting him together. Charlotte grew as she went along.

But I’ve done all the knitting (assuming I can find the tail, which got lost a la Bo Peep) and got some of the assembly done last night.

I sewed the legs and ears in place before sewing and stuffing the head and body. I hope this will make the doll stronger.

George is just as goofy and cuddly as Charlotte.

I think he will be finished tonight. I will then make clothing. I would sort of like to make a dress, in which case I suppose this will be Georgia the Dog.
