– – and the answer is – –

It’s the first new jumper pattern of the year – brilliant

the posh dog clothing company basket weave jumper

 

This is the new Basket weave pattern.

It will be available in 4 smaller sizes in a lighter weight for the little chaps – – and 4 larger sizes for the bigger guys.

I am making more of an effort this year to make some really big sizes.  They take me much longer to make and are not nearly so popular – so there will always be less in stock – but I can always make one in the colour you prefer if you give me a few days.

The whole point of joining The Posh Dog Gang is that you are unique, you are cosy, and you are loved

I have eaten my frog today!!!

Don’t panic – no slicing and dicing of our cute little Kermit is involved!

This is a tip I picked up from my business mentor to help you get things done.

If you had to eat a frog before you go to bed today – when would you eat it?

We all have ‘those’ projects.  You know – the ones we started with all good intentions – and then went off – – or the ones that have got buried because we ran out of something – or we passed over on to more exciting things – or sparked off another idea.  Those are your ‘frogs’.  We push them away in the cupboard – or burry them in boxes and forget all about them – well we try to forget all about them – but they niggle away at our subconscious and hold us back – those are your frogs.

Soooo – you HAVE to do it.  You have to eat your frog today.  Do you put it off for as long as possible and not go to bed for 3 days because you really just can’t – or do you slice your frog on toast for breakfast and get it over with because that way – you can play all day without it hanging over your head all the time.

Meet my frog of the past 8 months or so.  I started it because I never make enough ‘big dog’ jumpers – but I had only done about 4″ and I went off it.

It has been sitting in my favourite work basket (thinking as it was in my favourite basket I would do something about it! – yeah – right –  don’t work).  Every time I finish a project and am looking to fill in an odd evening I have picked it up and done a bit – but I have hated every minute of it!  This year I have been making a huge effort to finish – tidy – clear – and I have finally finished it.

The positive side is – I love the basket weave stitch – so I will be writing a new jumper pattern with that stitch – but a nicer body pattern.

I can’t tell you just how good it is to have finally finished chewing on my frog!!!!!!

New knitting patterns for you to work

I love to share – and I have finally finished my latest knitting pattern instructions – so that you can knit a Posh Dog design for yourself.

So – here is the latest pattern – the chunky raised chain links . . .
– a great pattern that has a raised texture chain link over a plain background with a contrast button up underbody and roll neck collar.

That makes 3 new jumper patterns I have written this year – WOOO HOOO

I had hoped to finish the Father Christmas suit that I started work on last year – I may get a bit more work done on it – but there is  no  way I can get all the sizes worked out and tested before Christmas.  It takes me 3 or 4 months to produce a pattern with 4 different sizes for you.

If you want the pattern (and the others) – they are available as downloads in the Posh Dog shop – if you prefer a written – or emailed copy just ask – we can do that too

Hay – we can do anything!!!!!

 

4 months on

It takes me about 4 months solid sweat and tears to create a new knitting pattern!

And I have just finished one!

The Chain Link Jumper.  Plain background with a raised chain like pattern – usually knitted in a 3 colour pattern stripe – but sometimes one colour with the chains highlighted in a different colour.  Wide, plain underbelly to neck section with buttons – the buttons are functional – but to be honest I very rarely undo them!  Available in 4 sizes –  this one is great fun.
