  • Paws down, Olive wears it better than Eddie. No offense, Eddie!

  • Pawfect! (See what I did there…..)

  • OMG. I can’t believe I spent weeks knitting an Eddy Wrap for my (beloved) dog-averse sister when I could have been making the equivalent for my dog! I know a dog who needs this!

  • Well, now Cher and Jellybean May need this sweater too!

    • Cannot wait to see a version on Cher and Jellybean. My Roux is a red version of Olive (same exact build – for real) and I am starting this for her as soon as I finish the cowl my human daughter wants for Christmas (the one on the cover of Alter Knits but in different yarn). Off to see what yarn Julia used…

    • Yes, they most definitely do! They’d look fabulous!

  • The dog, definitely the dog

  • Eddie wears it. Olive owns it!!

    • Oye! My phone screen has a big crack which makes typing on it a daily adventure. Add in auto correct and that explains spelling my name wrong!

  • You have the nicest knit friends Olive!!!

  • Who wore it better? Definitely Olive!

  • Oh Olive! How lovely you look. Poor, poor Eddie!

  • Olive looks wonderful! I love it.

  • oh my gosh! Olive looks absolutely stunning in her beautiful sweater! I have spent hours drooling over the variations of that pattern that you have posted – it’s not sane on my part.

  • Love this. And thank you for reminding me of the Eddy Hap and Cowl (I bought the pattern just now). I bought the Eddy Wrap pattern just to learn how to knit the shells (I am not a shawl-wearing girl), but the hat – yes, that is the ticket. Once I become proficient in shells, there is this mini schnauzer that my sons’ family has adopted…..

    • Oops, that is supposed to be “Hat”

      • I know but a hap would also be great!

  • Such sweetness and kindness in an obvious labor of love. Olive is rocking the look, too.

  • Although I have the yarn for the Eddy Wrap, I haven’t had enough time start another project. Being a 65 year old former RN, currently on disability after a fall, my dedication to a course that will bring me out of abject poverty is my first priority. Going from being a “doctors wife “ to being divorced and then living on disability has been a tough transition. But vocational rehab has saved my life by funding a medical coding course. My light at the end of a tunnel ! My knitting also keeps me focused and I look forward to your daily posts.
    Knit On !

    • Ann, take care. I work on healthcare workers’ occupational safety and health and know that you have been through a lot. I am glad that you have found the coding course and I hope your new career will use your experience. I am sure people at the bedside are missing your expertise.

  • I cannot heart this enough. ❤️❤️❤️

  • Way to go Olive! Perfect colors, too. Please don’t tell Bailey. He still has zero bespoke sweaters after 8 years!!

    I’ve tricked someone to giving me her kitchen colors to make towels & dish rags, but getting dog measurements is a whole ‘nother level.

  • Olive absolutely rocks it. As someone searching for a better dog sweater, I love the design and features of this one, especially the heinie flap and the chest bridge. Wow!

  • Wow, a custom knit JFC sweater? That’s one lucky pupperoni & I’m jealous.

  • Olive is the perfect model. She looks good in everything.I also think her color combo is better than the Prada.

  • Olive definitely wears it best! Strut proud Olive!

  • Definitely looks best on Olive.

  • That’s a gorgeous sweater and Olive is one lucky girl! She’ll be the envy of all the other supermodels. Let the Devil wear Prada…Olive’s got a Farwell-Clay!

    • Giggle

  • Definitely a tie between Olive and Julia.

  • Just now had the chance to go back to her post, “Listen to the Voices You Can’t Hear”. Such an important topic. When I go to my lovely LYS and to an occasional knitters’ paradise (Rhinebeck!), and when I scroll through the gorgeous online and paper knitting mags and blogs, I mostly see only people who look like me: white women with enough money and time to spend on what can be a pretty expensive hobby. I hope I will always strive (and succeed) at listening to the voices I can’t hear. I live in a pretty non-diverse part of the country, and I sometimes feel down about knitting in public groups as they are so non-diverse. I do hope the knitting community continues to expand its diversity and grows as a welcoming place for all.

  • Oh my gawsh I love it – and the colors are perfect for Olive!

  • Julia Farwell Clay rocks! Stylist to the stars.

  • You and Olive and Julia are a delight.

  • I love this so much! Olive and the sweater are both beautiful! I love the shell motif, and considered it for a shawl a few years ago. This post has re-ignited my passion, (thank you!) though this time the cowl is calling to me.

  • Thanks for this today! I needed it! Olive, paws down, wears it best!

  • Lovely. I ran into Julia at Rhinebeck, while she was talking to a man in another version of the sweater (primary colors). Of course I didn’t realize it was Julia until much later. OOPS. But I did tell her I loved her sweater, so I guess that’s what really matters. Olive really is the best-dressed dog, perhaps ever in the history of the world.

  • Olive, duh!
