If you haven't read Jenn's account of her mother-in-law's house fire, I recommend it-a heart rending story. Jenn had seen my post about all my sock knitting and asked if I would make her MIL's Yorkie a new sweater since his was lost in the fire. Dog sweaters are something I haven't attempted because Westies are hot little dogs, even after a close haircut. I looked up a pattern, made the extra small size and sent it off to her. I didn't feel that it was small enough-so far Jenn hasn't complained-so I tried it again, with pink veriegated yarn and smaller needles. My thought was to make the small size and give it to my oldest son for their Pug, Daisy. I think it's still a bit on the big size so I tried it on my Westie, Chloe. She likes wearing it, but boy she would get hot. I tried it on Merlin but he got really wound up and I had a heck of a time getting his legs through those little leg holes!
She really thinks she's hot stuff! Like I said, I'd let her keep it but I'm afraid she'd get too hot. Merlin was pouting at this point but he got over it when I tried to put the sweater on him. I think I'll still try it on Daisy, that poor thing shivers all the time.
BTW-right now it's 0 Fahrenheit, with blowing snow. I think I want to wear Chloe's sweater. My trip to Mazatlan can't come soon enough to suit me!
