I had someone who did not know continental knitting tell me I was knitting "wrong" while I was trying to show a thrower how to knit continental. Struck me speechless for a second. When I then tried to explain the difference, she still insisted I was simply wrong, that people who knit like I do just don't know how to knit properly. I just fell silent and went back to my lesson. Didn't seem much point in continuing to argue the point.

Cute cute cute sweater! Lucky dog, that Loretta.


You don't know me like I "know" you-- since I have no blog, yet I have been reading yours for years, but I am like you. I knit in some kind of weird self-taught style that is efficient and fact. I'm constantly told I do things wrong. I am ashamed to say that I drastically changed my purling so it seems more correct, but is much slower. I love your books and your style. Don't change unless you have too. Bevqw on Ravelry.

Wow. That is an awesome dog sweater. My dog doesn't have a ton of fur, but he is both bigger and far enough south that it is pretty warm so far.


Awesome trend-setting dog sweater!


This sweater is so cute! And your color work is great! Steeling on a dog sweater sounds like a good idea. At first I was going to say it sounds like a lot of work considering it's just for a dog but at least there's less risk involved!


SO cute! I remember how happy our "weiner dog" would be when we'd put his sweater on him each winter. You could tell he was cozy and stylish just by the wag of his tail and hop in his step.

I'm amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both educative
and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
Now i'm very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something concerning this.

Wendy, pls tell the opinionated knitter at the shop that the fastest knitter award is won every year by a "thrower"...look it up! Mary in Cincinnati


We spent Christmas week in Thailand. It was 83 degrees. The dogs there were wearing tee shirts. I asked our guide why, if it was for fleas? She told me it was winter there and the dogs were cold. We were wearing shorts and sandals, and thai's were wearing flannel shirts and long pants and some were wearing winter coats. They looked at us, we looked at them. Probably thinking, what were they thinking. Lol.
