Ok please don't laugh, this is the first stitches of knitting that I
have ever done in my life, and decided to make Cosmo something
simple since I was just practicing the knit and purl stitch.





Can you tell he wasn't too happy to be posing for me? It could also be because
I just woke him up to put it on him, hee hee.



Great I can see it all ready I am gonna be decked out in all this yarn
material stuff....is this because I was trying to chew the yarn while you
were working on it???? And what is up with the purple? My masculanity
has been severly offended here---Cosmo

Ok Cosmo you know you look great in that coat that your mom knit for you and you have to remember that "tough guys wear pink" (and sometimes purple too) at least that is what my one of my skin kids has written on his black T-shirt

It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it and you have a cute little maltese to knit for
the first project I ever knitted was also for my first puppy I knitted her a sweater for winter. No pattern or anything. Don't ask me how I did it. but it turned out great Just like yours.
It looks wonderfull. Great job. !!!

Those stitches look pretty good to me.......knitting is fairly easy, good knitting requires some talent and skill and it looks to me like you have both.

It looks kinda like a cape on Cosmo.............PURPLEMAN! Brings joy and love to the saddest soul! Able to leap onto laps at a single bound!

Cosmo is such a doll-baby.

Hee Hee thanks. Last night when I was showing my husband I also put it on
him a little different put the strap around his chest instead of around his
belly it looked exactly like a vampire's cape on him except that it's purple
instead of black. I will try to get a picture of it a little later and post it hee hee.

my hardest problem is figuring out how to comfortably hold the yarn.
I have been doing it the Continental way since I'm left handed but don't
want to worry about having to swith the left for right and so forth in patterns.
The book I have, has two different ways to hold it, and then I found another
way to hold the yarn on line but none of them are working for me, especially
when Purling. Purling is still a very awkward stitch for me.

So all you knitting experts out there feel free to give me some advice
or even pictures of how I can hold the yarn comfortably.

Aww too cute! You did a great job! And the color looks great with his pretty white hair!

Speaking of hair, Cosmo's hair is so cute. He reminds of a newborn baby- how their hair is so fine and soft it won't lay down- or that "just woken up" look.

Yeah he has that natural windblown hair look 24 - 7. The only time it looks
in place is for like 2 seconds after I am done brushing him. Then it's right
back to the wild child look. :D
