How many times have you groomed your dog, looked at all the fur floating around your feet, and remarked to yourself that there is enough fur for a sweater? Well, here's the guide that will help you turn that remark into a reality. With instructions for everything from "harvesting the fuzz" to spinning it into yarn to patterns for knitting dog hair into sweaters, hats, and scarves, Knitting with Dog Hair
is a dream come true for dog lovers who also love to knit. Directories of equipment suppliers and people who will spin dog hair for you are appended, as a thorough guide to dog-breed hair and a glossary of dog-grooming and spinning terms. Instructions are thorough, and the authors' sense of humor will make this an enjoyable book for people new to spinning. Cat lovers shouldn't feel left out--special instructions are given for collecting cat fur, and patterns for a cat-hair pill box hat and a shirt collar are included. Caroline Andrew
