I folded it in on the sides until it looked like a dog’s muzzle and then stitched it together. Because of the fold, you don’t have to stuff it.
Sew front and back of chi together starting from one side to the other.
Then sew bottom on. Leave yourself enough room to stuff the pup and then finished sewing.
I attached the ears and then the muzzle. This way you can align all of the features to your liking.
I sewed on the button eyes last.

Here is a link to all of the lovely photos of my future sweater. http://interweaveknits.com/galleries/bonus/fall-2009/scoop-pullover.asp
I also lurve very much tiny owl knits's snake-a-licious sweater. Here is a photo of it on her blog: http://owlinthedark.blogspot.com/2009_08_30_archive.html
I am taking the afternoon off of work. Yea. I really don't have a choice someone has to stay with R.
Something else I have been thinking of- I am ready for Halloween. I have decided R and I will decorate a certain section of the living room. We hung window clings of pumpkins. They are pretty cheesy but she likes them. I wanted to purchase some Halloween house things from Michaels, but gee they were 80 and 40 dollars. I said never mind. I am hoping I can find some for cheaper.
I haven't even started on our costumes. The thing that sucks the most is my cousin is getting married on Halloween. And, no, it will not be themed Halloween. It will be a formal wedding.
I am actually jealous that people are getting married in October. That is when I was hoping we would get married, instead it is March. March is no fun.

Good gosh, you would think my Tico would give up the ladies now that he is neutered, BUT the ladies just can't give him up! I have a little female chihuahua on my porch and won't go away! She lives down the street and I tried to walk her home. Love is strong in the doggy world.
