I was successful in my intentional sweater knitting for the dog:
I followed the pattern / chart from a Japanese dog sweater book that I linked to in a previous post. The yarn is Lamb’s Pride Worsted in Limeade, Persian Peacock and #18 (it’s a softer sage-y kinda green), knit up on size 7 needles, cast on Tuesday (I think) and finished it up Saturday night. Of course, he doesn’t like to wear it – he sulked at my feet, but I think it looks good on him. I have tried to make him wear much worse!! 🙂
Friday was a rather crappy day at work, so it was nice to come home to a package from Jennifer who was my swap partner for the Knit Mitt Kit Swap. Look at these goodies:
She sent so many goodies, including a fabulous bag that I have hanging on my chair already full of a few projects, that I forgot to take a photo of. She included 3 skeins of her yarn which is just stunning! And directions to make fingerless gloves, thrummed mitts (including the thrums and extra!!), candy and pez, and the Stitch and Bitch calendar which I really really wanted but haven’t been able to find anywhere! She rocks!! Thanks so much!!
