FO! and a Swap

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!!

Hi there,

I wonder if you might be able to help me?! I’m from Belfast, Northern Ireland and I’m studying for a Masters degree Digital Art. For part of my project I’m collecting quotes from many blogs across the blogosphere. I intend to use the quotes in my artwork – I’m putting together illustrations that are inspired by the quotes. I noticed part of a posting you made, which I think would be really interesting to include in the work:

‘I followed the pattern / chart from a Japanese dog sweater book… 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!! :)’

Could I possibly ask if i could use your quote in my artwork? If you are happy for me to use it I can add your name and your blog address to the credits if you like. The artwork will be available from my blog in the coming months and I’ll email you to let you know how its going. This would be really helpful! My web address is http://www.pixeljourneys.com/digitalarts/
The site is a bit messy at the moment but i'm working on that!

Kind regards

Julie

hi becca!

I'm looking around for CT knitbloggers, as I'll be moving to the Hartford area in a couple of months (from Mass.). Just thought I'd drop in and say hi!

Love the sweater great job! If you keep trying it on him for longer and longer periods he should get used to it. My last doxie used to give me these sad eyes asking for his sweater.
