What was supposed to be a Pitbull amigurumi

I tried to make an amigurumi version of my co-workers dog. A sweet little Pitbull. While I think the dog I created is cute, I am very disappointed in it because it looks nothing like her. I wasn’t happy with the yarn I had. Everything was too brown or too grey, and she is somewhere in the middle. I just couldn’t find anything that was right. Next, her nose is way too long. it doesn’t look like a pitty at all. My next project was going to be another pitbull, so I decided I would have to change that from the pattern I was using (from AmiguruME pets – a wonderful book) and stop sooner to shorten it. As I was looking up the right parts to use to start over, I realized I think I used to completely wrong recommended nose pattern for a pitbull. I don’t know how I did it, but once I started on the wrong nose, I just finished that pattern and never noticed I was on the wrong page, maybe? Gah!

My co-worker said they loved it, but of course they would say that. They are a kind person, but I wish it had turned out to do the real life doggie justice a little better.
