Sophie’s Sweater

So I decided that Sophie could not wait any longer for her sweater. When I started knitting 5 years ago and everyone said – “don’t make me anything.” I was planning on knitting her and Max a sweater and even bought the yarn. One thing lead to another and here we are – with a knitting list as long as my arm. Yes, I’m feeling quite a case of the guilts. But no more, Sophie will have her sweater. I’m just about at the 1/2 way point and cruising along nicely.

Purple is her signature color – so we have a nice purple, a lavender, a gray, a white, and a black. Pattern is from Patons: A Dog’s Life. Bright stripes – the one on the cover, with my own color choices.

So in other dog news, I just finished a great book about a great dog – Merle’s Door. If you love dogs and are looking for a great dog story, this is it. There is also an accompanying website.

  • I love those colors! It’s funny you are knitting for Sophie as I’ve just got a sweater on the needles for Gabby myself. Carrie’s coming in a couple weeks and I want to give Gabby a good cut first to keep down the fur tumbleweeds but I don’t want her to freeze with no hair. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get time to get a progress photo up if the sock releases it’s death grip on me. 😉
