Sherlock Bones?

Our lovely Shetland sheep owning friend Julia emailed us a new knitting pattern.

Gail said it looked a bit complicated, but I disagreed.

"Elementary, dear Gail".

Now where's my pipe?


  1. Exactly, Bertie. That looks fairly straight forward...says SHE who once made a camping jumper that only needed two poles and it would have doubled as a tent.

  2. Crikey Bertie. I hope Gail nails it cause I sure wanna see YOU in that!
    Mums still laughing at Bella, Roxy and Dui's comment.

  3. Bet Gail could do it. My momma, on da udder paw . . .

  4. Oh butt isn't knitting sooooo much funs Bertie, the pattern to rip, the needles to chew and the ball of wool to knot into such a mess that Mum can't unravel it and has to buy another one……oh…sorry…that's just me! Butt, give it a go Bertie, it truly is funs!

  5. Hi Bertie, when I saw this pattern I did think of you straight away. I'm sure Gail could tackle this pattern. Compared to the lovely (but technically complicated) Fair Isle jumper she made for you a while back, this looks to be easy peasy (I think).

    By the way, in my haste to email you the pattern I completely forgot to send you the link for where I found it. Here it is

    Best wishes

    Bertie lad, you are so correct - as is Miss Julie; that looks waaaaaay easier than Fair Isle work and just think how handsome you will look when visiting uninvited next time; no doggy wearing such gear could ever be unwelcome!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  8. We like it. We think you would look mighty handsome in it. But we think you are mighty handsome anyway.

  10. Ohhhh Bertie...that is one fine looking layered jacket. Mom loves the nice collar too.we are quite confident Gail's nibble digits can master this. We know she loves challenges like extreme biking, hiking and being a loving owner to such a handsome WFT.
    Now Gail get busy
    Hugs your bfffs
    Madi and mom

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  13. Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the possible. Gail can make it possible, we have faith.
    Thanks for being a friend
