Imagine your sweater is too short to cover your hindquarters
(It could happen to you)
The vet could be laughing at your “belly sweater”
(And the vet’s assistant, too)
Imagine all the people, LOLing at you!
You may say-ay-ay-ay I’m a dreamer
You may say I’m barking mad
But I bet the Big Lady Who Yells will make it longer
And my sweater will be rad!
P.S. I’m pretty sure this is not the first time I have to say apologies to John Lennon for trivializing this song. But hey, “imagine no possessions”? This is “easy if you try”? I can’t even imagine no dog sweaters!
P.P.S. Technical note: I lengthened Olive’s puppy sweater by picking up stitches along the edge and doing a 2 x 2 rib, back and forth, with the opening at the center belly. When it was long enough, I sewed the center seam about halfway to make it fit snugly. It came out real nice. Very glad to be a knitter in such a situation.
