The newest additions to the family include the tiniest yet: Charlie and Apollo. They're soooo tiny that they only fit in kitten collars at the moment. Instead of spending 20 bucks each on puppy harnesses that are a.) too big and b.) not cute at all, I decided to knit harnesses myself for them when we go for walks. I initially tried attaching the leashes to their collars, but they just snap open every time they tug on the leash.
I was telling my son about the newest project for the puppies and how I couldn't think of a way to make the harnesses NOT look like lame puppy sweaters... That we needed to come up with something like stegosaurus spikes to sew in the back or something. While he's a boy and loves dinosaurs, he wasn't sold. He said, "MOM! You should make little jet packs to sew onto their harnesses!"
I immediately saw it in my head and couldn't believe how simple it would actually be. "You're a genius, kid."
Only 27 sts, 20 rows, felt, stuffing and a some old fashioned needle & thread magic and this is what we got. I can't wait for the next night out on the town. They already get all kinds of attention in public, but people just might have cutie time strokes as soon as they see these little poop monsters geared up.
