Knit It, and the Dog Will Come

This Gidget Hoodie was intended for another dog.  David (of bunny sweater fame) made it for a family dog, Oscar, but it turned out too small.  He is in the process of knitting a larger one for Oscar, and saved the finished hoodie for another dog.  Isn't Ruby cute?  The hoodie is knit in the same Noro Kureyon that I used for a book sample.  I love it.
This little sweater has a lot of skill building techniques--top down shaping, provisional cast on, three needle bind off.  Just a few ends to weave in, and attach the top portion of the pocket.  A great result!
