A Tale of Two Sweaters

Once upon a time I got a set of Knifty Knitter Looms.

I was thinking of projects that would utilize my new toys... and BINGO!

It hit me... why not make a doggie sweater?

The stretchy cylndrical shape seemed PERFECTO for chilly puppies.

After a little trial and error in making the leg openings... I came up with a workable sweater for Jubal.

(I will try to post my "pattern" later)

I made this with two strands of acrylic camo-variegated yarn and then trimmed it with two strands of a bright hunter orange.

I was going for the "hunting-dog-look". Kind of a "tongue-in-cheek" look for a pampered miniature poodle.

Jubal loves his little sweater.

He wears it when hunting for a warm lap to sit on!

<---------- ( here it appears, he has hunted down a "Daddy" )
He also wears it when he is "On Patrol" in the front window!

Then I thought that I should make Gabriel a sweater too.

I thought it would be cute for Gabriel and Jubal to have matching sweaters.

Gabriel looked very handsome in his sweater.

He seemed to like it... so I went inside.

It must have looked tasty to Gabriel, because when checked in on him about an hour later, the sweater appeared to have been ... uh... eaten.

I am guessing... either he ate it... or some sweater-eating Zombie attacked him and he was lucky to escape with his life!!!

We are just glad that he's ok...

Either way, it will probably be a while before I make Gabe a sweater again!

But I won't let it stop me from using my Knifty Knitter Set!

... More to come ...
