My 2nd FO
It's a Christmas (or Holloween as Freddy Kruger) dog sweater for my parents Bichon. I had to make a new one after I failed at the mattress stitch and accidently cut the knitting trying to take it apart. One thing I learned while making this, is that I tend to knit better without so many mistakes as I do when i'm focusing on it which I thought is strange.

Cute doggie sweater. I like the colors, they don't shout Christmas though. Nice and subtle.

That is a great doggie sweater!

I crocheted one for one of our dogs once, she was SO insulted! It was like "What's wrong, my coat isn't good enough for ya?" She actually went and HID behind the couch when someone came in,and didn't come out until they left. She was a great dog.
