DIY – Knitted Pouf

I’m a little tardy in getting things for a nursery.  Or maybe not?  It’s not like my baby is almost 8 months old.  EIGHT MONTHS OLD!  Wow time, slow down.

Anyway, I’m in the process of fixing up an old broken rocking chair, and I wanted something to rest my feet on that eventually the baby could play with, too.

After browsing around on Pinterest, I found this…(tutorial here)

pinspirationMaybe I liked it because the dog reminded me of my parents dog, Bear.  Maybe not.  Anyway, it led me to this site which has a lot of cool free patterns.  But, like all free stuff, it’s not really a complete pattern.  My mother, the true knitter, helped me decipher the sometimes lacking instructions.

I decided I liked the stripes on this one

Right now the beagle likes it.

Spoiled dogs...

Spoiled dogs…

But I’m hoping once Henry gets a little older he enjoys it, too.

Do you have any DIY projects you’re working on right now?
