I recently got a copy of "Pet Projects: The Animal Knits Bible" by Sally Muir & Joanna Osborne.
Its a GORGEOUS book with 33 adorable patterns to knit for your pet. And some really unusual ones too that are fantastic!
There are some great doggie sweaters & accessories in here!! I love the Soccer Coat, Floral Jacket and Ruffle collar. My fave though is the Anti-firework Balaclava doggie hood -SQUEEE!!!!! I want a couple of these for Bettie SO BAD!!! Its so cute!!!!! Also included are Eco projects, recycling knit sweaters which is something I can make easily. LOVE these!
Cat projects are in here too - a pretty waterlily toy (I think could double as brooch for humans), lush cushions and beds for them to nap on. My fave-the Mouse Mat!! Other animals get the knit love too - a horse blanket, turtle tent and bird cage cover are some of the animal projects.The skill ranges are for the beginner to the expert knitter,and if you can knit this is a KILLER book!!!!! Sadly, I can barely knit, so I usually just ask/beg others to knit for me. If you are a knitter who is passionate about your pets, this is definately a book for your library.
I'm going to be part of the creative team at A Place to Bark as the "Feline Fine Arts Fun-raiser" to help raise funds for the animal, so I'm giving this book away as part of that.
Leave a comment below and I'll pick a winner at random on March 31st to get this book and some yarn to get you started on your own "Pet Project"!
