Playing Wolf

I recently finished a coat for my little dog, Laser.

He didn’t cooperate too well with photos outside because there was fluffy SNOW and new SMELLS!

It features a button closure with a couple modifications– I’ve had to move the buttons once already because the yarn stretched out a bit during wearing.

Teeny leg holes have the same gradient rib that I worked on the edgings of the coat.

A few extra rams grace the back as my boy is strangely long for a Lhasa Apso; there was a whole lot of ribbed edging as a consequence!

All in all, I had a load of fun knitting Laser’s coat and I love how it turned out. He’s warm and I’m happy. I was able to use up quite a bit of yarn, so my Palette stash is (finally!) dwindling. 🙂

The Beginning of Festivities

A bit late in posting, but I’ve finished my own Snawheid. Not in time for the turkey trot on Thanksgiving, but it wasn’t too much later.

I have been wearing it on my daily walks, it’s perfectly warm! The pattern was a delight, quick and fun. I’m really trying not to knit several more…

Christmas is coming quickly and I’m looking forward to wearing it around as I finish up last-minute shopping and attend get-togethers.
