The name Corgi literally means "dwarf dog" in Welsh. It's a fitting title for these compact pups, who are famous for their miniature legs and tiny tails. Corgis, which were originally bred to herd cattle, sheep, and horses, are great with kids, are extremely loyal, and are known to be eager to please. Their personality ranges from happy, smart, fun-loving, loyal, stubborn, and playful. They are adorable little troublemakers that you won't be able to help but laugh at when they get up to some mischief. This handknit version is a little less troublesome, of course! ;)
Each Corgi Puppy measures approximately 8 inches tall, and around 11 inches long (from nose to tail). Do remember, that each hand knit item is unique and sizes may vary slightly.
Hand knit with love by a mama who also plants rice in the rice terraces (take a look at the P20 bill to see what they look like).
Knitting Expedition was begun as a way to provide supplementary income for the women of Ifugao to maintain the rice terraces. Instead of leaving the region to find better paying jobs, the income from the sales of the products allows them to stay and tend to the rice terraces that are not only an awe-inspiring legacy of their town but also of the Philippines and which has provided sustenance for generations of their families. The brand Knitting Expedition also signifies the journey of founders, Candy and Aueeie, as knitters and the distance that the hand-knit products have to travel to make it to your homes.
