Baby, it's cold out there
Don't forget our canine friends need to be kept warm, too. In the (admittedly blurry) photo above, 14-year-old bearded collie Trotter models his new felted wool coat. His owner reports that he is so much more comfortable with this extra layer on, that she sometimes has him sleep in it! The pattern is the Blaze Coat from the book Top Dog Knits by Jil Eaton. It's knit with 4 skeins of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky and then felted for extra warmth. The bright color helps him stand out on snowy walks.
Have you done any knitting for your animal friends? Tell us about it in the comments!
