I would love to see a sequel with more patterns and ideas.
However, I'm still bogged down with stuffing and assembling. I knitted up pieces for 3 animals - the camel, the horse, and the bird. I tried putting the bird together first, but realized I needed to do a couple of simpler assemblies first, it's more complicated. I'm still working on the camel and it isn't all together yet!
I make cloth art dolls and I'm not a complete novice, but I must say that shaping the squares and rectangles into curves is not nearly as simple as you might think. I'm determined to finish my animals, but probably won't make new ones. Oh, and do add a neck to the poor horse! It really looks pathetic without one!
It might have been easier if I'd made the squares and rectangles full size, but to my mind the finished animals were just too unwieldy at the larger size. However, I will admit that it's very soothing to knit the individual pieces. I could probably keep on doing that for months!
I found the book to be in very good order, it actually looked as though it had never been used. Very satisfied.
