For that smart dog-about-town...!

The dog-sweaters are done! 

In my previous posting I said I was trying to get some dog-sweaters done to help with the 'Hope' project - working with people living on the streets with their canine companions (see here ) - well, last night I finished the sixth one! I would have liked to have done more, but the deadline is in a few days and I had to allow time for them to be delivered. Still, there's always next year!

Although this 'Argyll'-patterned one is my favourite, it took a bit longer than I would have liked - and doing the front shaping whilst keeping the pattern correct is not something I should like to repeat in the near future!

Anyway - they'll be wrapped up tonight and in the post tomorrow - I hope the canine buddies they go to will appreciate the gesture! (and more importantly - I hope their human 'companions' will soon be able to find permanent accommodation and shelter out of the cold, wind and rain!)


  1. You've made a difference in the lives of six dogs, and the people they love.

    1. Thank you, Joanne. I do hope it brings a little cheer to someone - the 'Hope' charity is living up to its name!

  2. What an awesome project and beautiful dog sweaters! I think I like the argyle the best too...but they're all gorgeous. My 3 small pups all love sweaters!!
