a sweater for Kia

This is quite possibly the least photogenic thing I've ever knit.  It's a sweater for Kia, my grandma's little white dog who posed on my 30s Barn Raising Quilt.  
The pattern was supposed to switch to garter stitch for the belly, but as many times as I reread it, I couldn't find the part of the instructions that told me where to switch from the ribbing. So it's all ribbing. It'll look cuter with a fluffy little white dog in it, I'm sure.

You had a good week for both fabric and the yarn. Have a happy holiday.

I'm sure the little white dog will love such a warm coat and that your Grandma will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Could you please tell me where to get the pattern for your barn raising quilt? I did an Internet search which yielded lots of log cabin barn raisings, but didn't find this one.
I don't have a blog and wish there were a way I could thank you and all the bloggers I follow for all the time and effort put into your blog. It's a real source of information and inspiration. Thank you and Merry Christmas!
