I had this book for a week and had knitted a dozen felted mice! They are so cute! I even played around w/the pattern and made some smaller and some larger than the pattern. It's so basic I can make them w/out the pattern! The other patterns have set my creative juices to working. Rather than using the kitty pattern on a sweater how about using it on a handbag or tote!?! Gotta go, can't stop making those little mice...

This is a great book, filled with many unique and interesting projects that I can't wait to get my claws--ahem--I mean my hands into. Of the 20 projects that are in this book, there are only about two that I would not consider making, which is excellent odds for any craft project book. With most craft books, you are lucky if you like even half of the projects within them, so I would recommend this book to any lover of knitting who's a lover of kitty cats too! Two paws up!

I've already knit the hat pictured on the cover, and now all my knitting friends want to make one, too. Next up, the felted mice for my furry friends, Lily and Teddy.

As a cat-lover (who is owned by 10 demanding cats!), I found this book great fun. There are twenty projects, conveniently organized by "Projects for Cats," "Projects for People," and "Projects for the Home." Skill levels are nicely balanced between easy, intermediate, and experienced.

For those who enjoy felting their knitting (on purpose), there are ten projects for you--6 for cats, 1 for people, and 3 for the home. Personally, I'm looking forward to knitting the Felted Catnip Mice.

The photos are all color and show the projects clearly. The cats pose nicely, as do the people. There are charts and drawings where needed. The instructions appear to be clear, but as I haven't yet actually knitted one of the projects, I can't be certain. All in all, I'm pleased with this book and glad to add it to my shelf of knitting books!

What a wonderful collection of cat themed items...I can't decide which of these delightful items to knit up first...the patterns are clear and concise, which makes them indispensable to knitters...GREAT JOB DONNA!!!

I love cats and really like this book. Many, many of the projects are made with wool and/or are felted. I personally do not use wool. I however still find the book fun. I'm working on the "Felted Carpet Bag" in a worsted weight yarn and it's coming out great. Just needed to knit swatches and adjust needle size. I will make the Butterfly for the bag out of fabric. It would have been nice to have a full size template for the Butterfly in the book. I also plan to make the kitty pillow. The book is probably not for beginners but I am far from an expert knitter and find the instructions workable. I even plan to make the "Felted Cat Doorstop" out of acrylic yarn as a couch pillow. Charts in the book could be incorporated into other projects too.

How much do we expect of any knitting book, anymore? I have made far more use of this than I expected to: the chullo pattern doesn't have to have such an icky color scheme, after all, and no one will make you do all that needlefelting on everything. I don't because my cats would have no compunction about unraveling all the needlefelted things and eating the yarn. The cat beds work surprisingly well, if you like to felt things, and I have become a major dispenser of felt mice. No one in my address book is safe: little mice have traveled to ten states so far and that's only among friends. After a juvenile prank with one at my favorite Mexican restaurant, the owner ordered several dozen in Cinco de Mayo colors, and there will soon be a pinata-full at a local kitten shower. You can knit a complete mouse in the doctor's office or in a nasty traffic jam; it's perfect short-term therapy. Anyway, I've had fun with this book. I'd give it a try, if I were mew.

This book is awesome. I am working on the felted cat bed right now and look forward to giving it to my cat as soon as it's finished.
