I tried to make my friend's dog a sweater using the knifty knitter and my first skein of homespun yarn.



Needless to say, while the sweater turned out alright with even armholes and everything...it was a wee bit too small to get onto his odd-shaped body.



He looks like he wants to kill us (or run away crying because we were laughing so hard at this visual).

So, he didn't get a sweater, but a head-warmer....we figure maybe the sweater will fit her cat.

P.S. There are more pictures on my Photobucket account, s/n kallbrier.

That is HILARIOUS! His ears fit the holes pefectly! It's a doggie cowl! Maybe if you used the rectangular purple knifty knitter you could make one that goes over his back and attaches to the hood somehow? Hmmm...  I love embarrassing my dog by making him try on wigs...

That is one unhappy Italian greyhound!  I can't stop giggling!  It reminds me of the time we squeezed my mini poo into a sweater that made him look like a sausage with two fluffy ends!  He was so angry!  (see my icon for a visual of him angry)  hee hee hee   Grin

Hahahahaha that's soooo cute. Can I ask how did you do the arm holes with the knifty knitter? I have one and I didn't know you could do that.

so cute, such a sad bewildered look on his face!   Cheesy
I'd like to know how you did the arm holes too.  I have the urge to make a sweater for my cat now, even though he'll bite me when I try to dress him.

I just skipped three prongs when I was ready for the holes and tied together the strands that weren't knitted in when all was said and done.

Bah, really complicated to explain. Maybe I'll draw something out if that was too vague.

That poor dog definitely looks like he needs a sweater. He has such short, fine fur!

OH, HELL!
I just took in a giant mouthful of my Diet Rite Black Cherry soda while reading about the first two photos... and like others, I'm thinking, "Aww, how cute!" Then I scroll down to see the 3rd pic... needless to say, papertowels were used in the clean up of my diet rite in which I spewed everywhere while laughing.
THANKS SO MUCH for the hilarity.
 Cheesy  I can't stop laughing.
