Rog is a nomad. He carried his bed his back during his last visit.

mini project: roger [dog] sweater

My first crochet project looks like a success!  Decided to teach myself how to crochet so I gave myself a little project–a doggie sweater for Roger, Kristin’s dog.  Mostly it was inspired by the fact that the picture of the finished product with the pattern was a boston terrier so it was most appropriate for Roger to be my muse…haha.  I always thought it was slightly strange for pets to wear clothes (dresses specifically), but seeing how cold and wet it is in NYC at times, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to give them a little protection from the elements (wet dog smell is not fun). 

Found the pattern on the Lion Brand Yarn website.  I usually buy their yarn (used for this sweater too) because it’s really affordable and there are lots of colors.  They have TONS of free patterns online for knitting and crochet and they also have a learn to knit/crochet instructions if you want to teach yourself.  I learned the basics from my grandma when I was younger, but this site is really helpful for beginners with no experience or for people who need a little refreshers because they forgot something.

Hopefully Rog enjoys his new sweater and that he’s toasty warm!  Thanks Rog for being such a great model!  And thanks Kristin for humoring my first attempt at a crochet project and promising to have Rog try it on no matter what it looked like–even if it had 3 arm holes.  But Thankfully it had 2 arm holes and fit Roger pretty perfectly!!  Yay…success!  (more pics below of the fitting/modeling session….)

Running towards the owner for a treat to keep the model happy…

There’s a perfect “sit”

From the Blooper Reel:  The arms have not quite made it into the armholes so it kinda just looks like a shawl.  I let Kristin handle the getting on of the sweater…haha…she’s a little more experience with getting him into doggie clothing.

today’s desk view: roger + stowaway

Rog had a stowaway stuffed man on his collar today at the office.  What a long day of playing catch.  He’s looking a little tired.

It was a good day for Roger of doing tricks for popcorn and playing catch. Who can resist that face?? Always a fun day when he comes.

my favorite nyc dogs…

I don’t have any pets of my own, but I would love to have some.  In the mean time, I’m having a lot of fun playing with with my friends dogs.  Meet Abe and Roger. :)
