Snowbird

DSC04643
From the depths of the knitting basket, long forgotten in the gloom, comes...Snowbird! It's back in the knitting rotation now that I've finished Tea Leaves and Christmas is over. It took me a little bit of time last night to figure out where I was in the pattern and the knitting and get myself back on track, but soon I was knitting along on it again. I'm almost to the place where I divide the body from the sleeves and then it will look more sweater-like in the pictures. I think I should also point out that it's not off white, ivory, cream, or really any color that appears naturally on Logan - it's sweatshirt gray!

Logan appreciates all the nice comments on his accessories. I will try to get a photo of Stealth Dog, but being stealth and all, it's difficult. There was a comment on the leashes you can get through Etsy that match the collars and I had seen that many of the collar makers also make matching leashes which is a very cute look, however Logan has a leather leash. It was originally Finn's leather leash, but when you spend the money to buy a leather leash, you don't let your dog play with it, chew on it, or carry it and they last forever. They also feel great in your hand and I know that if a whole flock/herd/school of squirrels sat by the sidewalk, taunting Logan like the French taunted King Arthur a la Monty Python, not only would I be able to control Logan through it all, my hands would not be torn to bits when it was all over. Nylon leashes do what they're meant to do, but they will kill your hands in the process. If you've never had a leather leash, you should seriously check into them - they're wonderful!

I completely agree about using a leather leash with a strong dog!

Ooo I like the look of a seed stitch border! I made snowbird last year and wear it all the time...I've been thinking of doing another. I was considering a 1x1 rib border.

I like a leather leash for a big strong dog. My favorite leash for Peanut is a finger-woven (Canadian Indian style) wool of two colors. It's strong enough for a 10 pounder and is more comfortable that even leather!
