It has been a while since I have posted on PR and I am knitting( a beginner) and still sewing...

I drafted two patterns today for my boyfriend's dog. One is a sweatshirt and the other is the sweater lining for her sweater. The biggest difficulty was figuring out how on earth to do an armsye for a dog! My biggest decision is how to sew the lining to the acrylic sweater I made- any suggestions from friends who knit or sew??? I found the techknitter blog and she suggests hand sewing the lining..

I am also wondering which would be a better choice- a knit or a woven fabric on the bias for the lining. The reason why I am lining the sweater is that Miss P (the doggie) sheds quite a bit. I used Vanna's choice acryllic yarn and want to make i cord button loops too.

aarrggh!!! I wanted to finish the stinking sweater today and it's not happening. :(

Something with a little "give", doesn't have to be a knit: could be fleece. I don't think a woven cut on the bias would "give" enough in all directions.

And I'd say, hand sew it in.
