A couple of cases where someone should've measured twice:

The Headwarmer (http://www.getcrafty.com/blogs.php?user=danyell&entry=5331)
A Cute Rat Sweater with One Little Flaw (http://squee.icanhascheezburger.com/2011/08/26/cute-animals-sweater-for-a-sweetheart/)

Oh that poor puppy!

Dressing up animals = wrong

Except for this. This just rocks.

:roll:

I wouldn't say dressing animals is wrong, though some pet clothes are really wrong (http://www.simplicity.com/p-1814-crafts.aspx). (The ones in the lower right are what I'm referring to.)

Another thing I like about cats. You will not be able to costume them without blood loss, which is as it should be, IMO.

Maryn, who had no pets at the moment

The first time I knitted a sweater for my (then baby) daughter, I had to take one shoulder seam apart and retrofit a button band. Being an easily confused new mum who was quite sure it was fine and I was missing something, I had to do the taking apart bit with it actually on her. It went on - just - but I think her head might have come off with it if I'd tried.

My kids have stupidly large heads.

Poor baby! :) You've got more skill and patience that I do, Skylark. I would've panicked and taken it off with scissors.

Oh, Maryn, don't tempt me like that. Behold, the infamous Knitted Cat Bikini (http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/4238/1041/1600/20060406-PUMPKIN.jpg)! :evil
And nary a bloodstain in sight.
