Dog Coat

Hello Little Birdie,
This weekend I made a coat for the old boy.
He is sick, on medication and getting very skinny despite eating like an elephant.
I hope this keeps him a bit warmer.

Weekend Knitting

Hello Little Birdie,
This weekend I finished some knitting projects.
I am always surprised how long it takes to finish off a knitted garment after the knitting has finished.
I completed this 12 month old stripey jumper.
This pattern was quite quick and it is from this book.
I like this jumper so much I have started another one.
I also completed another small vest designed by thrifty knitter.
I started this to use up some wool (the green) from the stash of leftovers and I ran out before the vest was completed. I used a contrasting wool from my stash leftovers to complete it and wove some in to the body to link the two colours. It turned out ok, however I would have preferred it to be all the same colour.
Happy knitting.
