Default I learned to knit...

...just so I could make my baby this:





Taught myself to knit over the holidays. Truth be told, I have always wanted to learn, but Tilly needing a sweater was what pushed me to finally do it. Tried store bought ones, but she's shaped funny, like a greyhound, and has a tiny chicken neck but a big barrel chest. For any of you that knit, it's a great pattern. It tailor makes the sweater to your dog. You use your gauge and dog's measurements to calculate cast on stitches, increases, decreases, etc... Fits her like a glove but the ribbing (all around the edges, leg holes, neck, and even down through the chest) keeps things flexible. My baby stays nice and warm.

That looks fantastic. I only know how to knit in a straight line, but I love to crochet. Seeing this beautiful sweater makes me want to learn to knit tho.

How lovely! Both the sweater and the babies!! I LOVE her coloring!

Mine is so small still that I am having trouble finding things that fit snugly. If they are loose at all she flops around and bites and pulls at it! This one fits perfectly!
