I remember someone was looking for doggie sweater patterns. I could not find the post :(, but I came across this (http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/252433.html) book while surfing.

Thanks, EKG! That was ME. And Howie, of course, who wishes to expand his couture collection.

I think it was for a chihuahua, as I remember replying to it.

OOoooh yes....Howie...the somewhat submissive one. But after seein' your other pictures, I see your big girl does that with the entire gang.

You ever try that pattern (I referenced earlier) made just for Chi's?

Looks like Howie's sportin' a child's shirt or something in that picture....or are you just THAT GOOD on small needles?

2. Hat and scarf for my niece, matching hat for baby doll (check)
3. Scarf for me (check)
4. Scarf and Hat for friend's birthday (check)
5. Scarf and purse for MIL (check)
6. baby booties, hat, blanket for preggo coworker (che.... "ck" will come when neverending blanket is finished)
7. Loop st bath rug (hmph. Loop st wasn't as easy as I thought, so Im reevaluating which st to use. Lovely big, fat cotton yarn sitting on dresser in 2nd bedroom looking like a poor orphan)
8. Washcloths being used to play with potential bath rug sts (2 orphans on dresser next to LBF cotton, as above)
9. DK hat for DH (on needles now)
10. DK hat for baby bro (not even started. Well, at least I measured his noggin)
11. SWEATER FOR HOWIE!!!!! (Actually, this may move down on the list if the weather continues to improve....he wont need anything so heavy & so will wear his new Hawaiian shirt purchased on clearance at PetCo)
12. Sweater for me
13. Hat for DH's aunt
14. Hoodies for sis & nephews
15. Scarf for SIL (EVERYBODY is putting in their "orders" since I learned to knit!) :rollseyes:
16. Socks with the coolest Fortissima Socka self-patterning yarn I bought at same time as LBF cotton
17. Mittens with same (I bought 4 skeins each of 2 colors)
18. FRIGGIN BREATHE!!!!!

Howie is sporting a doggie sweatshirt, sized XS, purchased at PetCo. It's hard to find tiny doggie clothes that arent pink & foo-foo. He's a MAN for goodness' sake! ;)

WOW, what a list!

BTW, among my copied research materials is a pattern for a Loop st for rugs, etc. I'm going to PM you with the pattern instructions so you can evaluate/compare it with the others you're trying.

If it's an easier stitch it can always be posted here later. :)

Howie is, right now, scratching inappropriate places and belching just to prove he's a MAN. He has a very delicate self-esteem!

You are just TOO awesome, Happenin!

Hi all, new knitter here:

I have the same problem with *my* chihuahua.
One of the reasons I wanted to learn to knit is to make her fun sweaters.
