rely a bit too heavily on alcohol and irony.

So....more dog clothes from me!

I don't have a dog small enough to model this, so right now I have pictures on the hanger, but I'm awfully proud of it. Done completely without a pattern using US8 circs and about half a hank of Crystal Palace Cotton Flamme in a really pretty emerald green. The color does not translate well in the photo.

I bought the yarn during a bag sale on littleknits.com, so I have 9 1/2 more hanks of the stuff. I think I might make myself a little cropped cardi out of it. It's soft, the texture makes the simple stitching interesting and it's lightweight enough to be warn even here in Las Vegas during the summer.

I'm pretty pleased with it. It still needs buttons or snaps or something though. I'm trying to decide between some small flower shaped buttons I have or small metal snaps. If I use the snaps they'd be hidden, and this could work for a little boy dog too I think.

What do ya'll think, is it masculine enough to be a boy dog sweater? Or is it still pretty girly without the buttons?

cute!  i think it could definately work for a boy dog!  maybe even with blue buttons! 

kudos to you for cuteness and lackofpattern-ness  Wink

OMG, so cute. Totally works for a boy dog, infact, if you ever post or come up with a pattern...my aunt just got a york shire terrier that I would love to knit one for! Great Job!

Boy dog for sure! It's super cute, though, seriously Smiley

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
