View Full Version : FO - Another Doggy Sweater

03-01-2006, 12:45 AM
I cast this on when I was waiting for more yarn for my huge bag and finished tonight while I was hangin with Andrea at her Knitting Guild knit-together. This is from Puppy Knits...a GREAT book for anyone who has a small pooch. I omitted the goofy pompons as the recipient is a MAN, for gawd's sake. ;)

This sweater is for Howie's friend, Symin the poodle, who owns my co-worker, the Director of Nursing. Bob has MANY times purchased treats and presents for Howie, and its about time I was able to do something nice for him.

Here it is, modeled by my very own Madilyn Louise, who is NOT a poodle, but lhasas are ABOUT the same size.

(Howie is all jealous and is hovering in the background.)

THANKS! Now I have to make another one, as requested, for a friend's birthdya!

That's adorable! :inlove: :inlove:

Maddie needs more photo ops...Howie needs to learn to share the spotlight!

So, now that you're hooked on doggie sweaters, think you'll be doing a doggie sweater class at your LYS? ;)

Funny that you mention that, because Dana wants Howie to wear sweaters every time he comes in to "ADVERTISE". :rofling: I think I should learn better how to measure a dog and make my own before i teach a class for that. There are so many differnt types of patterns out there....

:shock: Spooky!

And I'm sure Howie has no problem at all doing the modeling! :heart: :heart:

It sounds like you're getting lots of practice on the doggy-wear, so I'm sure you'll feel confident within a matter of months! You'll be an expert by fall and the beginning of doggie-sweater season! :thumbsup:

Cute sweater! I like the color change for the 'sleeves'--all three inches of them. ;) Howie does seem a little 'put out,' though. Poor baby NEVER gets any attention! :roflhard:

Adorable sweater! Madilyn looks wonderful in it. Are you sure she doesn't want to keep it?!

Poor Howie.

Thanks, everybody....

Maddie doesnt NEED a sweater....she has LOTS of "natural sweater" of her own. Lhasa'a have an undercoat, the breed having been developed in Tibet and all....

I cant WAIT to give it to Bob today! I only hope he brings Symin!

Great sweater! I agree with the rest... Maddie needs more photo ops! ;)

The sweater is awesome! You'll have to get a pic on the recipient. Maddie looks so cute in it though...too bad she already has so much hair :)

Symin is SOOO excited about his sweater! TOO funny....its like he KNEW it was a gift for him. As Bob was opening it, Symin was bouncing back & forth between us, smiling...after Bob tried it on him (it fit PERFECTLY!), he bounced back & forth even MORE and was smooching me all over the place....something he doesnt do often.

And, Bob (being the fancy man that he is) LOVES it..... :cheering: "Ooooh, SYMIN...look at your PRETTY sweater! Wait til your MOTHER sees it!" :rofling:

Will post pics when I get home!

Really nice! Wish I could be as good a knitter as you. Our Daisy (photo with Cindy the Lab in my blog) may have had some Lhasa in her. I've heard other Lhasa's bark and they have a similar bark...so sharp and shrill...they could crack concrete :lol:
