Knitting for your Furbaby
It's so much fun to be home this week catching up on everyone and their knitting!

I posted before that I have a new Yorkie-Lucy. I finally sat down today and started searching for small dog knitting patterns and found two books to start with. I've no doubt I'm going to have to modify them since she is 2 lbs. 10 oz and not much likely to grow any bigger but I can fill both passions at once for a while! I love the sweater on the cover of the book with the Yorkie...

Does anyone else knit for their pups? I'd love to see!

I don't have a dog, but I've made the Feline Dim sum (eggroll and wonton) from Knitty.com for my mom's cats. My cat won't bother with toys and she gets mad when I knit and she wants my attention. My multitasking doesn't suit her.

You don't need to ask me twice Jan

Here's Lucy. These were taken over the past couple of weeks... She is going surfing in Mexico with us for 10 days starting Saturday

I knit a sweater for my Pug a couple of years ago and she won't even wear it...I don't even try anymore! My Pom is too fuzzy for "clothes" and it would take forever to knit a sweater for my Grey!!

I just bought Posh Pooches from Barnes and Noble and I can't wait to knit one for my furbabies!!! Still a newbie and I need to learn a few more stitches before I start. It was only $10 so I couldn't resist!!!

I love the sweaters you made! I especially like the red verigated one. Was it hard?

Kathy, she is precious! I must get a photo of our friends' Yorkie, Ian, to share with you. edit: His mouth looks exactly like Lucy's.

I've never knitted for any of my dogs. Gotta fix that soon because The Mo is approaching old age.
