Even though dog hair can be spun, it isn't a stable yarn. Because the fibers are so straight and slippery, the yarns tend to fall apart over time. If you want to knit with the yarn as a memory project, try the brim of a hat in colorwork with the dog hair yarn being the secondary color.

Hi there! I found ya on Knitpicks and then migrated to Ravelry when I got my invite.
What's on your needles now? I've got 4 projects going ~ A baby layette, Baby afghan, capelet for myself and a pair of socks that I've set aside till I can get to my LYS for some advice ~ they're way too wide. My guage seems correct so I need a diagnosis from an experienced sock knitter to determine if it is the pattern that I'm using or if it's ME! Your pup is precious! I can't have a pet where I live, so envy those of you who enjoy that companionship. I've always had dogs and cats prior to living here.
