2 More to donate to the Humane League's Silent Auction...

one in Rose Camo by Bernat yarns... which isn't very camo? :think I usedthis pattern... but changed it up a lot... mostly because the camo wasn't striping well (it looked like a checkerboard!)... so I did different stitches... and crocheted it in the opposite direction of the pattern.

And one that is diva-licious in some Hot pink yarn and fun fur that I had lying around... this one is my own pattern. Here is the picture of the "underside" of the pattern to see the leg holes.

There are more angles and pictures in this post on my blog-- didn't want to clog up the forum!

Anyway--- lots of love to our furry friends. :yay

Absolutely adorable. Sad the pink camo yarn was a disappointment. I have thought of trying that one out. I looked on your blog. Nice sweater. =) Hope they bring some funds to the humane society and make someone's pup happy.

It may not be very camo, but I like the pink and green. It's very spring-like and feminine, and someone with a girly grrl dog will love it. I, too, think it's great you are donating these. Patty (whose two very furry dogs don't need coats)
