Thanks! I wish I was better at knitting. I made 2 scarfs last fall but they were really bad. Lots of holes. I ended up giving them to my younger cousins (5 & 8) they thought they were great! That is actually why I had to make the 2nd one. They were fighting over the first scarf. :D

I am really not that good either, i just buy the thick yarn that wont show the dropped stiches, but yeah i just really liked this sweater because even though its not as cute as some of the ones that look like little people sweaters its just so easy practicaly just straight stiching on the 2 pieces.....you dont have to actully do all the ribbing it asks for it does look better but i didnt do it on my frist one and it stayed on just fine

Sounds a lot like the sweater I made for Sassi last year.
A word of caution: I had some left over yarn that I used when I made an afghan. I used that yarn on her sweater, it was heavy yarn...the sweater is too warm for her.
Leave it to me to do something dumb like that...
I thought it would be 'wonderful' for the Indiana weather........not

I do put it on Sassi, but I take it off as soon as she gets in the door, because her coat will be slightly damp from her perspiring.

Guess I will have to try again this year with some lighter weight yarn.

This is a VERY EASY pattern and goes fast.

i bought these $5 sweaters from target. my mom is going to try to "copy" it and make gruffi a sweater. it was like 45 degrees this morning--FREEZING, and the dogs were cold. cynthia thinks gruffi was cold too...i dont think so though. :D i asked my mom if she understood the instructions...she didnt. she also doesnt like using recipes when she cooks--some of the stuff she makes tastes DELICIOUS...but the other stuff---i have no idea what she was thinking. :lol:
