I was able to accomplish this:
Rosie's doggie sweater needs some more work, but it's coming a long. If I can find the time tomorrow, I'll be finished and will take a few shots with her wearing it. I used really cheap yarn - but for a dog sweater that will need to be washed over and over, I thought it would be ok. I love to read about the different kinds of yarn and imagine what I could make. I got a new yarn catalog yesterday and I'm excited about placing my next order. I'm really too new at this to look at yarn and look at a pattern and instinctively know how wonderful something could look using that yarn. I guess that's just an excuse to buy more yarn and try new things.
