Sandra made a beautiful coat of very high quality for my fifteen month old Italian Greyhound. Sandra very kindly offered to re-make the coat as the original one was much too big for my little IGGY. I will definitely be asking Sandra again next time Schoko needs to add to his wardrobe collection 🐾 😊

Lady Sybil loves her new chest warmer! It's perfect for chasing squirrels in the chilly weather. As always, the quality is fantastic and the color (maroon) is beautiful.

We really like Inkas new snood. Again it's an amazing garment that's very well made and gore ou. However it's bit small at one end. I'm sure I won't have trouble finding it a new home. Prob my fault when measuring her. Thank you all the same.

Inka and I absolutely love her new knitwear. It fits perfectly and is so snug and warm. The craftsmanship is amazing and it's very stylish. I've not seen anything like it here in Melbounre. thanks so much.

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.
