Introduction: Tribute Sweater

I made this sweater in honor of my 2 Samoyeds, Big & Angel.
The main color of the sweater is Lion Brand Wool-ease, while the intarsia portion (the dog profile) is yarn I handspun of 100% fur. The pawprints were done in fair isle, and the text is duplicate stitch. The sweater means the world to me, as I no longer have my beautiful pets. We were blessed with Big until he was 14, and Angel lived to 16.5 years!

This is a wonderful way to remember your dogs! Btw: you say the profile of the dog is handspun from your dog's fur(?). Maybe you want to do another 'ible on spinning fur, some day?
