Handmade sweater

My mom wants to THANK you all for your good wishes and good vibes. Today was not a super day either but at least much better than yesterday. Now, she is counting the days until she gets her Christmas Bonus!

To relieve her stress she decided to start a project. Hmmmm... I am not so sure about it. She is knitting a sweater for me! Many years ago she made a million (?) of sweaters for her family. She says that sweaters for humans are pretty easy but she has no idea about a doggie sweater. I appreciate her good intention but.... lets wait to see the result, ok?

Eduardo tagged me for a seasonal meme which I am a doing now and I will post it tomorrow.

Have a good night

You are soooo lucky that you have a mom that knits! It is a wonderful skill to have!

She can make you all kinds of fun stuff like blankets, hats, socks, etc.

You are going to look soooo beautiful in your new sweater! I LOVE the color!

Hi Lorenza
I think that shade of violet will look really pretty on you.
My mom had to spend her Xmas bonus on vet bills (I'm worth every penny). Mom doesn't remember a time when unexpected expenses came up at Xmas.
Hope tomorrow is even better than today.
Love Ruby

A new sweater will be very nice. You will wonderful in it, of course.
We will send your mom good vibes for her car, wallet and head.
Don't be eating that makeup. You don't know what goes into that stuff.
We can't imaging your G-ma without a sewing machine. That is a crime.

Stanley said...

Sweet Sweet Lorenza!!

You have been so patient with me & Stella while we've been missing from blogging. Thank you for being such a good friend to us and coming by to check up on us.

I'm glad to hear your mama is feeling a bit better, but we're sending extra goober smooches and some Aire hugs her way. Please give them to her for us, and take a few for yourself!

I think that the sweater will be bootiful, seeing as how talented your whole family is. Can't wait to see you modeling it on the runway.

We have a lot of catching up to do on your blog, so we'll be reading about your recent exploits for awhile, and we're looking forward to it!

Goober love & smooches,

Maggie and Mitch said...

What a pretty color! This sweater will look fabulous on you, Lorenza! We can't wait to see it finished!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Kathryn and Ari said...

Lorenza, tell mom we totally empathize. And we love her new knitting project!

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

We are glad your mom is feeling better. Good luck with the sweater. We don't let Mom put anything but collars and harnesses on us ... and we go without those if we thought we could really get away with it.

It is Thanksgiving in the USA. We just wanted you to know that we are thankful to have you as a friend!

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

I think that's very nice of Mom to knit you a bewootiful sweater to keep you warm. We hope she has less stressful days ahead.

The color is very pretty, but maybe she'd be better off just making a blanket ? ;)
