I made this for Howie to match the one I made for Symin, since I had just enough yarn left over.

He's not looking too happy because (a) Howie's not a morning person, and (2) he doesnt like sitting on the table, but its the only place I could get decent light.

From "Puppy Knits". Collar in LB Jiffy, body in Plymouth Encore Chunky.

Hey, Kelly, I've forgotton, how long have you been knitting??? :)

Just over a year...I bought The Art of Knitting DVD in January, 2005. Then I learned to knit the RIGHT way here!

Ingy...this is only Howie's 3rd sweater. And, he doesnt like the other cabley one I made him. So, really, he only has 2 wearable ones.

Very beautiful! I love doggy sweaters. I love to make one too. :heart:

I intend to get "Another Dog's Life" book from Paton.

Does anyone think it's a good book to own? :heart:

I took out the pic and exchanged it with the links so folks could see ALL the patterns.

I LIKE A Dog's Life! I think more than Another Dog's Life. The patterns in the first one seem more "reasonable" for wear than the ones in the 2nd.

I may have to look for that!

Great Job Kelly! I love the jiffy colorway, I was playing with that same color last night, designing a new blanket.

Well, if Howie doesnt like the other GORGEOUS! cable sweater I know my Grandpas baby Chaquita would love some handmedowns. :lol:

That is so cute! Who's Symin?

If you aren't careful you'll be teaching a doggie sweater class, too! :roflhard: :roflhard:
