It's a bird...It's a plane...

No, it's a doggy sweater for my nephew's third birthday!

Here's the original inspiration:

All things considered, I'm proud of my replication of this design without a pattern. I would've bought the pattern, but it only came in French, so I thought I'd save myself the trouble. Heh. Here's hoping my version fits over the kid's head. My husband made the comment that, because of the coloring, the sleeves looked like the dog's ears. I hadn't thought of it that way before, but I can see it now and I think it's totally cute!

And, because I'm so proud of my finishing work, here are a few more gratuitous shots:

Intarsia all the way, bay-bee! Wouldn't the Rabbit would be proud?

The no-sew hem using a provisional cast on is my new favorite. Wow, that looks good!

Heck, since I'm on a roll, I might as well show another finished object:


Yup, finally done with that one... Originally this was intended to go with my Hermione Granger costume, but I think I'll just sell it on eBay instead. Unless of course, my brother *actually* wants it...

Well, that's all the photos I have to show this time! More coming soon of my progress on Convertible! Check the sidebar for updates!

Till next time,



    Noah's sweater looks amazing! As ever, you did an incredible job. I can't wait for him to get to wear it.

    He will love it, for sure...and as soon as we move to climate that is sweater-wearable, it'll be even mo' better.

  2. Well, if Noah can't get a block down the street without people stopping him to admire the new trike - when he goes out wearing this sweater AND riding the trike he probably won't be able to get two yards down the sidewalk! Sarah, you outdid yourself!

  3. That sweater is completely adorable! How much fun to wear and even better handmade by a talented aunt!

  4. fabulous sweater, seester! noah will love it! thanks for being such a great aunt!

  5. Glad everyone approves of the sweater! I really do hope that it fits on over his head, I'm a little worried about that...

    I think a "great" aunt would be sending toys, not handknits...but I'll settle for "somewhat-okay-but-very-far-away" aunt for now. ; )
