    About

    This was my first attempt at making (and fitting) a garment. I used the yarn I had on hand, so the colour is not very practical (white is not the best colour for dog sweaters). I learned a lot about gauge/tension and so it was a good practice project. Hopefully I'll improve as I continue to knit!

      I have a rather skinny 8month old doxie and I am a new knitter. However, this sweater looks easy enough to try. I have a ton of yarn that was given to me, and I think Woody needs to keep warm. I need to get cracking because it is really getting cold here in Western, NY.

        Thank you! She looked so serious and noble when I put the sweater on her. I guess she can use this as a knight costume next Halloween...? ;-)
