It has been 5 months since Cody is gone. My heart still aches when I think of him, everyday.
I'm making a sweater in memory of him. In this early Autumn, I miss him so terribly. I wish I can take him for another walk...
The sweater is knitted in round and seamless with dog design along the yoke. I made a design of Cody and using blue color yarn. I ordered some Elann Highland Wool for it. But after two days of work I realized it was too big, and I also wanted a total next to skin soft yarn instead. I have these Malabrigo Worsted in my stash that I bought a year ago. The color is so lovely, it's Red Java. It's almost as soft as Cody's hair.
I CO 164 sts and did decreases (1 st at each side for front and the same for back so total 4 sts each round) at every 5 rows 5x and worked 12 rows even and inc every 5 rows 4X.
So far so good.
I cried today thinking of Cody. Life is not the same without him. But I never want to let the memory fade. Remembering Cody reminds me that there are souls that pure, that lovely, like his.
