Is "pugly" an insult? An adverb?

A few months ago, a friend emailed me a picture of a knitted pug and asked if I could make some for him. He tends to be a smart-ass and I thought he was kidding. But I wrote back saying "Sure, how many do you want?", thinking I was being equally smart-assed. He replied "Three, please."

Lesson 1: E-mail is not the most effective means of conveying sarcasm (or sincerity, for that matter).

So I found the pattern on Ravelry (it's called "Wasabi, the gregarious pug") and here are the results.

Lesson 2: Pug owners are a fervent and devout lot.

Good question. I just checked the couch and so far so good. Maybe I'll put some paper down just in case...

I'm not a huge pug fan, but I must say those are adorable!

QueerJoe's picture are quite cute...I hope your friend is duly appreciative at both your knitting networks and your knitting abilities.

I sure am.

Please, don't let my sister-in-law see these. I'll be making them forever.

Pug people are slightly more than fervent!

They are sorta cute...and I'm not fond of pugs. The nice thing is that these little pups are easy to housebreak. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
