It's been getting colder in the last couple of months, which presents a challenge with her short fur. We got her a jacket off Amazon which is great if it's raining. The problem is, it's not really designed for a hound. She has such a deep chest and tiny little hips that it doesn't fit quite right. So I decided that I needed to knit her a sweater. I found a couple of free patterns on Ravelry for greyhound sweaters and decided that the one with the side closure would be best. I had some Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in my stash that I had originally planned on knitting in to a long sleeve sweater, but I decided it would be better to use half for the dog sweater and half for a shrug-type sweater. Am I spoiling my dog by using such nice yarn? Possibly. But I justify it by telling myself I did it because the yarn is machine washable :)
pattern: Side Button Greyhound Sweater
yarn: madelinetosh tosh vintage, in charcoal

Hopefully it's nice and sunny this weekend so I can take pictures of a couple of other finished objects I have.
