I’ve been knitting all along of course, and once Anne finally gets her package, I’ll prove it. But here’s a shot of the beginnings of Mugsy’s snuggle. The yarn is Amity by Ella Rae. I like it, but it’s got that acrylic fuzz thing going on. Mugsy won’t care though, and has already decided the ball makes a decent pillow. I’m knitting furiously, as wee Abby desperately needs her own snuggle and matching sweater. Anyone have a great pattern for a mini-dog sweater? Seriously, even with a bit of growing room, it will be 8″ x 10″. TINY, but a quick knit.
Love this daisy pattern Anne introduced me to. I cast on 121 stitches and will just follow the 4-row repeat until either I run out of yarn (I have two balls) or until Mugsy is content that he old, thin skin won’t be so cold. Of course, the pattern doesn’t show up so well with this mess of color, but it doesn’t show dog hair so much either, so it’s all good. I liked the pattern for its heft anyway; Mugsy and the Knight would both be mortified if they knew I was knitting the snuggle in a pattern called “daisy.” Mugsy will appreciate it though the next time he has to ride in the Knight’s truck with that cold, leather seat!
