I am after a red Irish Setter or Cocker spaniel one for my mum for Xmas. Are you going to get one? :). Richard Brophy - 25th October 2014
Firebox says: Hey Richard,
No plans for those just yet I'm afraid, but fantastic suggestions! Aww.
The most awesome kit ever basically. I bought the sausage dog and made him this weekend! The instructions are brilliant and it's fairly simple. If you've never knitted before there's instructions for newbies but you might want to practise basic knitting with bigger needles and slightly thicker thread as the thinner stuff can be a little tricky.
Brilliant kit though, it comes beautifully packaged with a lovely little book and everything you need (including needles) to make your knitted dog!
