Thoughts from the process
This blanket was very much my nice and simple standard blanket. It went super fast too, since I didn't have many color changes.

This puppy was big and complicated. It took longer than the blanket! The reason why I'm not sure about the puppy's measurements is I forgot to write it down before I sent it to my cousin. It is definitely one of the bigger stuffed animals I've made.

An interesting feature is the legs are movable. I made "buttons" by crocheting circles and then threaded through the leg, body, and opposite leg. In the future, I think I would block the circles before using them. The curling has a certain charm, but I'd want to also try for a flatter look.
