I've been meaning to make a dog sweater sometime. Cute. =)

Got the pattern from here: http://redheart.com/FreePatterns/tabid/118/Default.aspx?tabid=118&patternid=WR1790.pdf

Mine didn't turn out exactly like the pattern, but I'm happy with it anyway.

I used Red Heart Eco-Ways yarn in the "Asparagus" color instead of the Eco-cotton because I couldn't find it at Joanns.  Wink

He's a five month old German Shepherd puppy that thinks that it's okay to hop around like a little nut all the time while I'm knitting. Shortly before as well as shortly after taking the pic, he attempted attacking the scarf like it was his own toy haha. A little tough to get things done when he tries biting the yarn and running with it.  Tongue

Thanks! I think this is actually my first full length cable scarf now that I think about it. They can be daunting at times, and they require a lot more thought to make sure they turn out right. When I first started knitting cables as a teenager, I only managed about half a scarf length, so this is quite an accomplishment for me! Grin

I knitted my mom a scarf for Christmas. It took a lot of effort to finish up this beauty. I got the cable pattern from a book called "Encyclopedia of Knitting" by Donna Kooler, but I'm prety sure you could find the cable pattern somewhere online too. I just added five knit stiches to the beginning and end of every row. The scarf measures 53" in length.

and here's the detail of the cable

Great story about the yarn. It's supersaver yarn by Red Heart. I got the Medium Thyme color about a year and a half ago and finally used it. Well, I only had one skein of it. So I went over to Joann's to go buy another. Turns out it's a discontinued color there. I had to use "sportweight" of the same color and brand of yarn in order to finish the scarf. I kind of doubt my mom will tell the difference, but I can! I guess I learned the lesson of making sure you have enough yarn before starting a monster project.

Crochet is already tough enough for me when it comes to dark colored yarn, but the size hook the book patterns call for is so small! I think if I make any more "crobots" I will just use a slightly bigger hook and not kill my wrist.

I crocheted this Amigurumi ninja for my boyfriend. I got the pattern from a book called Crobots, by Nelly Pailloux. I found it pretty tough to crochet with such a small sized hook, so I altered the pattern a little bit when it came to making the limbs. It stands about four inches tall.

Oh wow! Very cool crocheting the top surface of the fish bowl to show the fish as well. Kind of makes it 3D. Very cute  Grin

Macee used to get her own box of plain cheerios for treats, so to make the gift even more thoughtful, I enclosed one of those mini boxes of cheerios (like the sample ones you can find in newspaper packages sometimes.) I really enjoyed making the dog. I finished it up over a weekend. I think this was my first successful amigurumi animal.  Cheesy

thank you! I'm actually not the greatest at crochet. I am way more experienced with knitting. I like broadening my horizons  Grin
