The adventures of a knit designer, her dog, and yarn stash. I'm the author of Doggie Knits, Sweaters and Accessories for Your Best Friend.

Well, hello there. So much for the knitting wrap up of 2010. One of the things I was obsessed with in the past few weeks was knitting Maximus, a Chic Knits design. I knit a lot of them. Two for me, which were true to the pattern as written. I loved how big they were, but it's difficult to stuff them under a coat. On the pattern, it's shown worn over a coat. I wanted to add a little something more to my mom's xmas gift of hand knit wool socks, so I made a minimus, if you will, fewer stitches and shorter, in Cascade Magnum. I had some left over from that cowl, so I don't know what possessed me, but I knit a micromus, which looks so damn cute on Piccolo. I like it over her sweaters, too. So much that I'm knitting more.
