Review

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

This book really tickled my fancy as I am a huge lover of animals and run a rescue, as well as being a crafty person and beginning knitters. There were tons of really neat, very innovative ideas for all kinds of different animals. Some projects that stood out were:

*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! :)

I have made only one item from this book, the Mouse Mat for Cat. Although it is graded as "Easy", I have to say the instructions do not make it so. It appears someone either forgot to edit the information, or there was a ridiculous attempt to save page space. Here is an example of the exact wording: "Dec 1 st at each end of next row and then at each end of 2 foll 4th rows." What? In most knitting patterns, the pattern is laid out row by row to make it easy to follow. In a further example: "Dec 1 st at each end of 3 foll alt rows." I finally deciphered these "instructions" by attempting to count the rows in the photo of the completed project and wrote it out row-by-row, which still didn't come out exactly right. Close enough for this project. Beginners should be aware that the patterns marked Easy may not be as easy as you might expect, but could be made much easier by providing better directions.

This little book really inspires me! There are a variety of projects, however I can only do the easy ones for now. The photography is equally well done. If you love pets and knitting, you will love this book. Well done!

This is a very cute book with a lot of pet projects in it. I'm not sure that I'll make most of them (I'm not really into dressing my pets), but I'm already working on my second Mouse Mat. It's a super easy pattern that works up really quickly, and my cat--who normally doesn't like things intended for cats--absolutely loves it! Since his was a success, I'm knitting up a few more to give to cat-owning friends and family.

Lots of great patterns and they cover all the bases -- from cats and dogs to turtles and other little critters. Anything that makes life better for our animal companions is wonderful, if you ask me. The patterns are fairly easy and practical. Overall, an excellent book!

My parents called me right when they opened this package laughing hysterically at the unique and cute knitting ideas. My mother absolutely loved it and said she will be making a doggie sweater right away. :)
