I made the cutest Knit Puppy Hand Puppet for the neighbour's 2 year old daughter this weekend. (thanks Knitting Zen for the link!) The directions confused me a bit so my puppy's nose was a little long, more of a dog than a puppy I guess, but it was quite cute! I used dark brown on the ears and eyes, and pink for the mouth piece. I also used Bernat Softee Chunky instead of the recommended yarns, as I wanted it to be machine washable. (anything given to a 2 year old child HAS to be machine washable!) The pattern is quite cute and has sizes for toddlers, children and adults. A neat christmas gift idea, I think my 4 year old cousin might get one too.
