Here is my first dog sweater. Chula was one of my hosts for my trip to Chicago. She is hard to fit for store bought sweaters so I thought I would take a stab at it. I took her measurements and started with a pattern I found in my stash of books. Instead of sewing it together I put in buttons and holes, it will be easier to put on and off. I added a belt for around her belly with adjustable holes for buttoning. Chula is ready for any weather now.

I was lucky to be invited to be a special guest to my friends craft night. The group wanted to learn how to two color knit after seeing some of my hats and mittens. What a fun night, the three who wanted to learn all were great. One really never knitted before and was two color knitting within an hour. I really never taught anything in knitting before so I was nervous about the evening, but I didn't need to have worried. Plus I got away for the weekend to Chicago. Took the Amtrak train for the first time, what a nice restful way to travel. We are planning another night in the fall.
