the dog needed a green sweater, too

Pattern: DROPS dogcoat
Yarn: Knitpicks Swish worsted in 'Dublin'

Here's another green sweater that only took a week to make. Hmmmm....if I stuck exclusively to bulky yarn or very small sweaters I would have 52 by the end of the year...

Here is wee Kira who is staying with us again for a week. Although the weather is fantastically warm today she allowed me to try it on her. I was using leftovers from a previous sweater, so I worried about running out of yarn the whole time and made it a bit shorter as a result. I also started this before I had her to measure, so I was guessing between "Bichon Frise" size and "Cocker Spaniel" size. I picked Bichon Frise but used worsted instead of dk weight yarn, hoping to split the difference. I'm not sure it worked because I think it's a bit snug. After blocking I'll take another look and decide. Regardless, it's a very nice pattern.

Hope you're having a great weekend. Happy Valentine's!
