Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Fiber Arts–Day 16

Never say “Never” is the theme today. Henry, one of the housekeeping supervisors at St. Joseph’s Hospital, is always asking me to make dog clothes and I always tell him that I will never make dog clothes. That is until today.

Quick is our daughter’s wire-haired dachshund. Normally I bathe him and she uses the grooming tool to thin his coat. With my foot surgery, I cannot wash him so he went to a groomer for the first time. He came home smelling great and with much less fur than he’s used to. He shivers now when going outside–hence the coat.

I loosely based this on Lion Brand’s striped dog sweater but made modifications because he’s so long! Our daughter made the button for the coat. He’s now warm and stylish in his custom made garment. It must keep him warm since he doesn’t fuss about wearing it.

I hope everyone had a wonderful day. See you tomorrow.
