Sophie Sweater

Yesterday I was finally in the mood to crochet. I haven't felt like it since probably October. So I picked up a hook and my favorite color yarn and started playing.


This is what came out of the hour with my toes dipping in the crochet pool... a Sophie sweater!


 I made the pattern up as I went and little Sophie was a trooper letting me try it on her every 5 minutes, and at one point putting clothespins on it to mark the leg holes :)


I couldn't have made it at a better time. We are having below zero temps right now here in Ohio. Bbbrrrrrr!


Sophie loves it and I have to say she looks adorable. Now I think it is safe to say I have now become a crazy dog lady.


 I'm off to take down Christmas decorations. Boo! Then maybe sit down and start a new blanket. What are you up to this Wednesday?

  2. Oh so cute, Becky! What a pretty sweater and Sophie looks just adorable!

    I bought an ugly sweater for my Chaweenie and it was so cold the other night that I left it on her when she went to bed. BIG mistake! She somehow wiggled her neck and arms out and the sweater was bunched all tight around her chest in the morning! I thought I was going to have to cut it off. I felt like such a bad crazy dog lady!

    I fighting off a cold on this snowy Wednesday but I'll be making lots of yo yos while I blog and watch Netflix. I make the most of these sick days!

    Ya know, you don't *have* to take your Christmas down yet. I'm not! :)

  7. Wow, what a wonderful looking doggie sweater and she looks absolutely adorable in it. It is amazing what we can come up with at the spur of a moment. Love the colors. They are so cheerful on a cold winters day.

  8. Cute! You're lucky she likes it: I made my dog a granny square coat last year and she HATES it!! Fusssy Miss. It has been so cold up here that I can't even take her outside, so the plus side for her is that she doesn't have to wear it - but I think she's getting tired of going to the bathroom in the dog run...

  15. She looks absolutely adorable and you will not lose her now in the snow. My son goes to Ohio State and they canceled school on Monday and Tuesday of this week. That is some cold weather for my Florida boy.
