Happy VDay. You Match the Dog.

retrofitLast year, I made my hubby a retrofit sweater.  He picked out the yarn and pattern and he wears the sweater all the time.  It’s all good.

My hubby’s not really a “I want to dress up our dog and parade around town” kind of guy so the idea of making our dog a matching sweater was hilarious to me.  Egged on by my daughters, I took the yarn leftovers from the retrofit and figured out a doggie duplicate, using an existing sweater as a template.

GroverFitNow, I’ve never made dog clothing before and there wasn’t any way I was going to take the time to figure out a matching raglan sleeve for the dog.  But, the doggie design was matching enough that I was rewarded with sighing and eye rolling and then a bemused smirk uMatchingSweaterspon first sight.  Yay!

My hubby was even a good-enough sport to let me take a pic.  (Thank you Dear!!)

Hope you all had a Happy Valentine’s Day!  Up next on the needles:  A lacy cardigan…  maybe?!?

  1. Lol! You and I have almost identical dogs – where yours is black, my Charlie is grey. You can see her in her very own “hounds”tooth sweater in my very first post last March. 🙂
    P.S. – your hubby is a very good sport, indeed!

    • 🙂 Isn’t it tempting?!? lol!

      I don’t think I would have done it if I didn’t have my daughters as both instigators and an audience. His reaction made it worth the time and effort! 🙂
