Knitted Cats & Dogs - review & giveaway from Jessie At Home

Knitted Cats and Dogs by Sue Stratford is full of 30 of the cutest, cuddliest friends you can create with yarn and needles. There are so many variations and adorable ideas. This book is a compilation of 2 of Sue’s previous books.

Knitted Cats and Dogs - Cats

Sue starts her book with an introduction where she talks a little about how you can vary your creations by using different yarns and gauges. She also points out which patterns are best for beginners, as there are patterns for those of various skill levels in this book.

Knitted Cats and Dogs - Dogs

Next is a section on Materials and Tools, which will tell you all about everything you need to have to succeed in creating lovable pets who will not chew or scratch your furniture.

Now, onto the patterns! What a selection. First of all, the patterns are written in a professional manner, and can be followed by most who can read patterns. If you are a beginner, you can try one of the easier patterns mentioned in the introduction, or you can be brave and try a harder one. The patterns are written well enough that you sure can give it a go!

There are a great variety of styles of cats and dogs available. Some look more realistic, some are cartoony. There are cats and dogs with clothing and accessories. There are even some mice! Go ahead, make a few. I promise, they won’t get into your favorite cheese.

Feel ready for any occasion with this sparkly wraplette. The best part is that the sequins are already attached to the yarn, so you just have to knit away and let the yarn do the work. If you can knit and increase, you can make this super-simple piece. Wear it as your everyday scarf or dress up your evening out, there are so many possibilities!

Hello! Welcome to the September Crafty Love Link Party #25, hosted by Marie Segares and me. Did you know the Pantone color if the year is a shade of green? It’s sort of a grass green. Anyway, I was intrigued to see that the most clicked links in August were mostly green! I wonder what next month will bring?

Be sure to share this link party with all your crafty friends so they can link up as well, and find new and fun craft projects around the web. Every month, the Crafty Love Link Party will open up on the first Thursday at 1:00 a.m. Eastern and close on the last Thursday at 11:55 p.m. Eastern. Share your latest crafts projects, patterns, tutorials, tips, and WIPS, and be sure to stop by and leave comments on other projects, too! Here are the 6 most clicked links from last month.
