Okay, so like a bad person I've left poor Craftster widow to the all consuming addicting Ravelry. So, I have a whole bunch of FO's to show off. I can say this for Ravelry, the one thing it doesn't have that Craftster has is a place to show off you projects as they get done, you have to trust that someone is paying attention to the 'people' page or stalking your notebook.

Anyways, here goes.

Of course I knit more dog sweaters.



This one is some Caron Shadows yarn, exactly one ball of it. Modeled by Allie Mae.



This is made from SWTC SoySilk, about half a skein. Modeled by Dixie Lee


My best friend is pregnant, and while I'm chomping at the bit to make baby stuff, we won't know the sex of the baby for awhile, so I've settled on making this letter bear clothes until I figure out whether I'm knitting for a boy or girl. The plan is to knit it themed sweaters (like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, etc.) so it has a whole wardrobe by the time the baby is born in April.

Here's the first sweater. Just to get the basic number of stitches I'll need, etc.




A few months ago I wanted to figure out short row shaping, so I picked up the Calorimetry pattern from Knitty and went to it.





It's knit from scraps from several different balls of Noro.

That's it for now. I've got a top down raglan cardigan on the needles (first people sized sweater I've knit!) and a cabled scarf for a swap I'm doing on Ravelry. Plus more sweaters for Pooh!

I love the way Noro looks when used in the Calorimetry pattern! I used parts of two balls to make mine and I loved the way it turned out! I also found it slightly eerie that your button is so similar to mine. Smiley That style wood button just seemed the way to go.

They are indeed Schauzers. Which is why I knit them sweaters. They're not shaped like other dogs so it's hard to buy off the rack stuff for them. And they LOOOVE their sweaters. Smiley
