I finished the dog sweater. It's not perfect, but not bad for a first attempt by any means. As expected, it was too big for our little Amy, so my dad's dog Mohawk has a new sweater. Here is is modeling it. He wasn't to thrilled with it initially, but I think he's going to like. He is a Chinese Crested and Xoloitzcuintli (Mexican Hairless Chihuahua) mix. He seems to show more of the Crested with the crazy hair on his head and tail.
Here's another photo of him.
This is our little Amy. Actually, she is Jacob's baby girl. She and Mohawk are from the same litter. He shows more of the Xoloitzcuintli in that she has just a touch of hair on her head. She is about half the size of her brother, although you can't really tell in this photo. I couldn't get them to stand still together to get a good photo.
When I was shopping for the sweater she is wearing here, there were some great sweaters. My mother said to me, "it looks like you could make that." Now, why hadn't I thought of that. And so began...another project. Now, I am going to have to make one for Amy though.

I love the colorful sweater! My dog is too big for sweaters, but he does dress up for halloween!
