 Hey! I got a new puppy a few weeks ago and while i'm not the kind of person to go dressing up their dog i cant resist a bandana!

Here is Grizz the Border Terrier puppy wearing his new bandana, yes he does look a little bewildered but honestly he likes it!

There is a tutorial on my blog http://eefweef.wordpress.com/

thanks sue, i think i'm just gonna go for it, i've already done a few rounds. ive knit a pinwheel blanket before so i understand the theory that i can just stick the arms in when it gets wide enough. im really looking forward to this knit now, and the prospect that i may actually finish it for my cousins 5th birthday in july!

thanks for the advice everyone Grin

thats a great idea neekie, i did buy a ball of pink cashmerino to use as the edging on the reid cardigan, i think her mum would prefer me to knit her something a little more traditional (i can assure you, she has loads of pink, fluffy clothes!) so i wasnt going to use fun fur, but good suggestion, thanks:D

im very much leaning towards the pinwheel blanket i mentioned in the original post, but i need to alter the pattern to suit dk yarn, id like to knit it in stripes like the original and have every second colour as navy, and i can buy a few extra balls of yarn in different colours, i think that might solve my problem!

Hey Cheesy,

I want to knit a sweater or cardigan for my little cousin, who will be 5 in july. i bought yarn to knit her a sweater for her birthday LAST YEAR! but it never got beyond a few inches. the sweater i was going to knit her was kinda babyish and in the last year she has turned into a real girly girl and loves all pink and fluffy. the problem is i have 5 balls of navy and 2 balls of red dk merino wool. its ok if i dont use the red in the garment, and it would be ok if i bought a few extra balls in different colours or something, but i cant really afford to go buy a whole lot more yarn.

although i would consider myself a good intermediate knitter, the only thing i have ever knit that had to actually fit someone was a hat, so something that the sizing was forgiving would be great. i love this pattern for a pinwheel sweater http://elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=138024 but it uses a different gauge yarn and im crap at adapting patterns for different gauges.

I have already attempted Reid from knitty, which would be gorgeous,  but i struggled with the lace pattern and sizing, so i've ripped out what i did, so my yarn and needles are waiting here to start something else.

any suggestions? Huh

aoifecmcc: I did a row of eyelets in the gray. I was getting so bored with just knitting, so I made an eyelet every few stitches.

thanks! i've started a small one with some stash yarn as a trial run, ill try that stitch for the edge, i really like it. i think my poor arthritic cat will appreciate a little pinwheel blanket Cheesy

wow this blanket is gorgeous Cheesy i really like the colours you've used. i would love to make a giant pinwheel blankie for myself! i had a look at the closeup of the edge on flikr but i cant make out what stitch you used in the grey bit- id love to know what it is, for if i ever did get around to making one;) Then after that bit did you just knit a few purl rows then do the picot bindoff?

you could use the other skein to make matching wristwarmers maybe?
