In which all is good in the world

Hello lovely people!

Who remembers this photo?


Good, and I hope you were all as excited then as I was about the prospect of a matching schnitzel shnauzer sweater (well, the dog is a daschund, but who doesn't love alliteration?). I finished it a few weeks ago and handed it off, and I just got the photos back.


The pup (Charlie) is such a good model. One more for good measure. Awww.


This was the first incarnation of the photoshoot. A bit manic, very British, altogether, pretty good match I'd say!

Pure Joy

But it gets better, friends. The following image is a thing of glory. Not only for it's perfection unto itself, but for the fact that it more or less fits PERFECTLY with what I envisioned when I started planning the sweater. I say yes! A thousand yesses!

My Vision

Max, Charlie and family: Thank you for making my dream come true!

Thanks also to Pamela of Flintknits fame for the wurstwarmer pattern (couldn't have worked out better!).

Back to regular knitting soon!

Very well done! I love puppy's expression in the last photo: complete and total humiliation.
