Those of you who are on Linkedin, might want to visit the Kanine Knits new business page and build a connection so that we can work together to create pet portraits you'll love. The more ways that I can learn which dogs you want designed and how you like the Kanine Knits designs that you are working on the better. Spring is here and so take your knitting outside and knit in the sunshine!!!

Join the Discussion!

Maybe my blog readers could help me decide which breed I should do for my next book. This is the first time I've come to the end of a book and not had another one in the works (except for the children's book I'm writing) and I can't seem to decide which should be next. If you click the link you will go to my Kanine Knits Books and Patterns Facebook discussion page
Then you can give me your opinion of what book or books you'd like to see coming out soon. Let me know what you think!

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day With My Irish Pal
This day always makes me wish I could spend more time with my dear friend Rachel Gaffney (no relation). She hails from Cork and has brought Ireland to the US with her wonderful business Rachel Gaffney's Real Ireland. Now, for all you who crave beautiful hand crafted items, and you probably wouldn't be here if you didn't, I should tell you that this year Rachel is working to bring gorgeous crafts and jewelry "from the ol' sod" and make it available here in the US. I hope you will click this link as Rachel celebrates 2011 as the year of the Craft.

Irish Wolfhound
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In honor of the day, I thought that it would be appropriate to visit the Irish members of the design collection here at Kanine Knits. These wonderful dogs have been a vital part of Ireland's history down through the years, vital to the hunt and serving as wonderful companions.
