But not knitting doesn't mean that we don't think about knitting. At least I've been thinking what to knit her for winter. Miniature pinschers are sensitive for cold and we happen to live in Finland, where it's not summer all year round. I've already searched through all the free Ravelry patterns and here are my top three favorites:

BucaLicious Sweater by Machelle Salmeen
There are plenty of adorable knitted dog sweaters and coats. It will be so hard to decide when the winter comes. I also saw one not-knitted winter coat in a pet store which I thought was really pretty. I also thought it was really expensive, but I took pictures of it. Dog clothes aren't so hard to sew, so maybe I sew it by myself, using the pictures as a guide.
And I realized that the are also other stuff you can knit for your dog beside clothes. For example, I think this felted dog leash is absolutely fabulous:

Knitted dog beds are fabulous too, but I think that as long as our Papu is still a puppy, she would eat it right away. She just likes to chew things.
