Morehouse Farm Critter Knits: 20 Easy Patterns & D&hellip by Margrit Lohrer
5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book!, 13 Oct 2013
I discovered Morehouse Farm knits a while ago by chance and I fell in love with the very original and sometimes quirky patterns, interspersed with chatty snapshots of the lives of the people and animals on the farm. As soon as I heard about this e book I had to have it! I've made the gator scarf for one of my grandsons which he loves, and the patterns in this book have solved a lot of present problems for both adults and children alike. The book is unbelievable value for the amount of patterns in it, they are all fairly easy and quick to make up too.

As I'm in the UK I can't use their own yarn unfortunately (it looks so beautiful) but have substituted yarn from my stash with… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book, 28 Mar 2013
This was bought as a reference for my daughter who is studying concept art and also as a replacement for one I owned previously and mislaid. We both play World of Warcraft and it is interesting to see how the artwork was developed. One particular set of sketches that sticks in my mind shows how they adapted trees etc. for firstly a lush area into ones for a plague-ridden area. With just a few tiny alterations, the whole feel of the areas changed drastically. It has also been interesting to see how ideas they had all those years ago have only just recently been incorporated into the game!

All in all a very interesting book and well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 28 Mar 2013
The book contains a number of patterns, written first of all in Mrs. Zimmerman's chatty style, and then with a shorter version at the end of each chapter. She actually invites the reader to share her thought processes which I found very encouraging to start designing my own versions to fit family members. It's also interspersed with stories about her life which are a great read as she had a lovely sense of humour and this shines through. It's like spending a day with a favourite friend who is passing on her knowledge of knitting with enthusiasm.
