Great coat. Well made. Perfect for those wet cold days. Thank you.
It started with a little dog who was cold...
When I got my Whippet I was very disappointed by the lack of winter coats that are available in street shops for this kind of breed. Sighthounds are longer and thinner than most dogs, which makes it pretty much impossible to get anything proper for them on the high street.
When a yarn shop opened close to my home, I decided to give it a go and learn how to knit.
At first I was lost because I didn't know much about knitting in general, and starting with my own design was quite a challenge. It took a few trys until Frido finally had his first cozy jumper.
The whippet community here is very tight and people just know each other through their blogs and breeders. Soon enough people asked me to knit for their dogs and last year I kind of started my own funny enterprize, that was very different from my day job as a photographer for a lifestyle magazine.
So, thanks Etsy, for giving me the little push I needed to get the designs and products out into the open!

I originally started knitting when I got my Whippet Frido. When I wasn't able to find proper winter clothing for him, I decided to make it myself and learned knitting. Two years later I've become obsessed and also knit for humans.
