Fashion Show

No new food just yet. I'm still eating leftovers. My pistachio rosewater cupcakes went over very well at work, so I think they're a go for the baby shower next month. Tonight is the start of our girls' fall/winter cooking and knitting night, so I should have some pics soon from that.

In other news, I have finally finished (wow, its really hard to type while a dog is licking your fingers!), Dill's dog sweater. I bought this yarn because I loved the colour combo of brown and blue, but realized I wouldn't really want to wear it myself...so a doggy sweater made sense, especially since dog clothes in pet stores don't really fit dachshunds properly, and cold weather is upon us. I should've made the end of the turtleneck looser, but I think it will stretch and look more natural with wear.




The pattern is from the Stitch n' Bitch book. There's a matching human sweater, but I'm not going there!

Oh! Too perfect! So very adorable, what a finely clad little doggie. I like brown and blue too, but it has to be that duck egg blue you've got in your combo. I think you should most definitely go for the matching human sweater! Thank you for your suggestion of a wide belt, I think you're spot on there, it would finish the dress of wouldn't it?
