WIPeout 2009 View from the Lake o' Frog - green dog cosy



PATTERN: Based on a stocking stitch doggy jumper in the Patons It's A Dog's Life dog coat book from about 6 or 7 years ago (the book with the stegosaurus coat on the cover).

YARN: Cleckheaton Country 8ply in a lovely olive green

PROGRESS: Altered to knit in moss stitch, one of my favourite all time stitches, to the leg holes - about 5".

ISSUES:
  • started several years ago and abandoned I don't know why
  • Peggy is chubbier now than she was when I started this
  • I'd have to find the pattern again, do the maths again, start again ....
  • Peggy has two jumpers, Rosie had two jumpers and Lochie is a known jumper loser so only deserves one.

ACTION: Unravel it, wash the yarn and put it aside for something else.

Unravelling done, washing done - yarn now drying.

Oh what a cute pup, she looks so stylish too!!! You'd never get a Labrador pup in a coat. I have that book!!!

I've been lurking and reading your blog since I joined the Stash Knitdown group on Ravelry at the beginning of last year. I really enjoy your blog, and I am now following your WIP Wipeout progress with interest. So I nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger award on my blog this morning.
