Knit that bundle of joy a sarcophagus!

For some reason, the little shaver doesn't look too happy...

Wiener Wrap, or What I Knit For My Dachshund

Here's Buster encountering Peggy, my inlaws' German shorthair. This creation is one I saved out of a slew of sweaters I knit to sell last winter, before I became gainfully employed. The dang sweater collection has done nothing but languish--all last holiday season at a doggie boutique, then all last spring, summer and early fall at a LYS for their biweekly sidewalk sale coinciding with the Hillsboro Farmers' Market, and now at a local pet supply store. Whateva. They'll come in handy as gifts for the next decade or so.

Buster is modeling the "Halloween" or "Oregon State Beavers" themed sweater. However, it's a bit on the longish side, especially the chest piece--so he's always piddling on it! Fortunately, it's made of Encore (orange) and Cascade 220 Superwash (black.) I can just pop it in the washer. For more formal occasions, here's an oldie but goodie: the KISS logo sweater I knit just for him. SPECIAL NOTE TO GENE SIMMONS' ATTORNEYS: The pictured KISS logo sweater was knit by me for my own personal use; no reproductions of the band's logo have been made to sell, nor have I attempted to sell my original design of the garment.

OK, now that we've got the legalese out of the way, here is the pic:

I even made an Excel chart for the intarsia. Party on!

Party on, Wayne!!

you are badass.
Hey there Sharon! I simply love the doggie sweaters, especially the kickass Kiss one! And those cookies you made look and sound way too good! Thank you for stopping by my blog, I'll be adding you to my bloglines right snappy! :)
