I knifty knitted my dog a sweater!

11 Jan

Since I bought my first Knifty Knitter back in the summer of 2004, I’ve made countless hats and scarves for friends and family (and even sold a few on occasion).  A few months ago, I discovered that I can make socks and fingerless mittens on my loom (I haven’t tried fully intact mittens yet).  This weekend I knitted my first dog sweater using a pattern I found at “Off the Loom” (pattern link).  I modified the pattern a bit and made a sweater that didn’t quite work, I modified again, and–PRESTO!–we have doggie sweater magic!  Here are pictures of my little shih tzu, Madalyne wearing her new sweater.  (Cassie the peekapoo who hates wearing sweaters will be getting one, too.)
