About Me

My photo
I have collected incredible amounts of cross stitch magazines in my over 30+ years of cross stitching. I enjoy knitting, crocheting and cross stitch. In May 2011 I decided to make my dream of sharing my love of needlecrafts a reality and started the online shop, The Stitcher's Market along with hubby. My biggest hope is to pass on my love of stitching to my children. Let's face it, some one has to inherit all my stash. I am shy, but I truly appreciate everyone's comments and friendship. I am glad to help anyone who needs any stitching information. I love to have giveaways and share other bloggers giveaways, so please stop by often. Enjoy your stay!

First 2009 Finish

Irish Fisherman Sweater ... doggie version
There it is!! My first knitting finish of 2009...and I am on a roll.

Doggie is wearing it now. First, you have to understand that my dog is very mellow. So mellow, people think he is on Prozac. lol. He is not scared of anything, lets you give him a manicure and brush him silly. Only thing that he is not crazy about is getting his teeth brushed and taking a bath. So, when I fitted the sweater for armholes and neck closure, he took it all in. After I finished it and put it on him, he is kind of wondering why his skin is blue .... lol..... He won't move in it..... lol. Once is he more comfortable in it, I will take a pic of him modeling his first sweater.

I love it, the cables are perfect. The back length is perfect, but the chest came out a bit long. It is also roomy, but great for when he runs around. One of the arm holes is a tad bigger than the other, but it is not very visible since the holes are toward the underside.
Bottom line is that I think I did a great job and everyone who sees him thinks he looks cute and very handsome.

Going to stitch the night away.......
