My dear friend Michelle asked me if I would knit her dog, Apollo, a sweater. I have to admit to being more than intimidated by the request. Even as an experienced knitter I just didn't have any concept of size or fit or proportion etc. I knit the pieces of a sweater using this pattern but didn't feel like I could piece it together right. I felt like I needed to have him in front of me to try it on and see if I was heading in the right direction with leg hole placement etc.
So he came over this morning! I love my friend but I almost stole her dog. Isn't he so handsome? If I had a little dog I might never knit anything else ever again but tiny little adorable sweaters for him. Oh my. I am smitten. And so was Simonne. Even though we couldn't convince Michelle to let us have him she agreed to let me be his personal knitter, so, that will have to do. Project Raveled here.
