If you're an avid knitter who's just wild about pets, then why not marry your two passions by knitting something they can wear or just lounge on during those "dog days of summer" that lie ahead? British knitwear designers Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne of Muir and Osborne will have you in stitches in no time with their recently published book, "Pet Projects: The Animal Knits Bible" (Taunton Press, $17.95). You'll be amazed at the fun projects featured in the book. Patterns include dog coats, a horse blanket, a ruffled dog collar, a hamster house, a wire bird feeder, a parakeet blanket and even a puppy papoose, perfect for bringing a dog (or kitten) home from the pet shop. --The Detroit News

*A hutch curtain with carrot motif for your bunny
*A wire knitted bird feeder
*A turtle tent which can be for any small animal, and looks totally sweet!
*koi flowers knitted from recyled plastic bags
*a beautiful horse blanket
*neat cat pillows
*a rat/mouse mat for a cat (or a rat lover like me!)
*a hidy house for a hamster or other small animal
* adorable turtle plushie as seen on the cover
My only qualms is I would have preferred a few more cat patterned items and maybe some items decorated with animal motifs for humans in there. I would definitely buy a part two with these items in it.
Great book overall! I will update again after I have knitted some of the items! :)
Some of the projects are: A variety of Dog Coats, finicky Cat Cushions, Lilly Pads, Horse Blanket, Mouse Mat, a variety of Dog Collars, Turtle Tent, Parakeets, Rosette, Eco-friendly Dog Coats, Hamster house, Knitted pets for your pet, Knitting Charts and instructions. You can create these precious items for the kings or the queens in your house or yard. Whatever pet you have you will find a project for them, even the Koi Fish. The pictures are charming and the patterns are understandable.
These projects would make charming gifts for your pet lover family and friends.
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!!!!! Other animals get the knit love too.............
