Completed Dog Sweater

I finished this dog sweater today, sitting down by Portland’s Back Cove – sunny, but much too windy to be out of the car with all those short pieces of lion mane! It’s for Dotty, who’s now living in Texas – but is always cold except in the midst of summer. Most of the yarn was from stash – although I have to say, friends contributed to my stash knowing I was going to be making this sweater! I chose for color, not for fiber content; it’s probably half wool, half synthetic. It would have been nice to have her here to try it on as I went. I hope it fits! but it’s knitting, and stretchy, so it should.

I think she’ll make a great lion!
