Ok Here they are!

Both dog and human tubeys were made with Filatura di Crosa's Zara merino using US8 needles. As you can see, Lola is very comfortable in her dog tubey.

Mine tends to bunch up on the sides---it seems like this could be fixed with better blocking. Any tips? This is my first human-sized sweater, and I don't have much blocking experience either.

ok, what could be cuter than a doggie tubey? i think yours looks great -- i had some issues with mine, so i don't have a lot of blocking suggestions.

Both sweaters look fabulous - and what a cute doggie!
Yours looks fantastic - do you really need to block it?

Thanks everyone!

Lola loves her tubey--she kept falling asleep when I took the photos!

I guess you really can't see the bunching issue in the photo--or maybe I'm just imagining it. Either way, it's very comfortable, and I'm sure I'll appreciate it more in the fall.
