I've fallen for the iguana!
on 7 January 2013
I LOVE this book; it's worth buying for the iguana alone! There's 15 pets in all; cats and kittens (love the picture of a knitted cat doing a 'roly-poly'); puppies and dachshunds; rodents (mice, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits); goldfish; budgies and parrots and snakes...
The sizing isn't necessarily to life - some are out of scale to others. And be aware that most are knitted in the round.
But it's absolutely inspiring for any knitter with kids in the family!
PS My nephew wants a bearded dragon, so have just borrowed this book from library and made him an iguana (told you it was only a matter of time!) Totally simple (except for back feet which I had to re-invent slightly as I couldn't quite follow pattern - but looks fine). And the finished object is to die for!!
