Vogue Knitting Knits for Pets – cover
I have a bunch of the Vogue Knitting On the Go! series books. I looked over this little one and decided that it would be good for the blog and needed to be removed from my shelves. It’s not a bad book, but not relevant to me. Here’s a run down.
Knits for Pets – Back cover
Start with basic how-to’s
Not surprising that VK would have good illustrated how to drawings. I recognize many taken from VK The Ultimate Knitting Book that I worked on many years ago. Nevertheless, good info for starting the book.
Great photos and instructions
As expected, VK produces wonderful images and clear instructions in all their books. I wouldn’t make such an involved project for any doggie, but it’s truly a masterpiece of Fair Isle knitting.
Dog and cat inspired pillows
I did think these might make a wonderful gift for my animal-loving daughter. Really cute.
Dog Bag for doggie on the go
Same daughter has a little dog and said this would make a lovely gift for her. Seems like a lot of work and involves plastic canvas to keep its shape.
I might give this pattern a try before I let the book fly away! I wouldn’t use the novelty yarn, but something a little simpler.
So why let go of this one. For one some of the projects are silly (not shown in this blog): Dog hat that reminds me of the Pussy Hats made for the Women’s March wearing; a couple of dog sweaters that don’t seem to fit well; a dog poncho in orange and purple (really?!); and mutt mittens.
Good try VK, but not for me! Onward with my knitting journey!
