Christmas Knitting II

I also made two sweaters for Captain, Al's dachshund. I didn't get a good picture of the second one, which is a pity since it was better fitted. Both were too long - the instructions for sizing really don't work if you don't have the dog there with you - but the second one I left unfinished just in case and indeed, needed to adjust the armholes for a better fit. However, both are very cute on Captain and he seems to like them. He gets so cold so easily that he was wearing them around the house...
