Do you love puppies? Kittens? Of course, everyone does (well most everyone). So Kanine Knits, in keeping with that thought, has just released their latest book, Knit a Kitten, Purl a Puppy. It is a full color knitting adventure for the family with projects for everyone from infant to adult with 23 puppy and kitten breeds worked into the sweaters, skirt, hat, scarf, bag, and more knitted accessories.
The breeds include: Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever, Siberian Husky, Abyssinian Kitten, Rottweiler, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Pug, German Shepherd, Tuxedo kitten, Bulldog, Chihuahua, Persian kitten, Yorkshire Terrier, Boxer, Siamese Kitten, Chow, Bernese Mt. Dog, Basset Hound, Exotic kitten, Dachshund, Boston Terrier, Miniature Schnauzer, Samoyed, Havanese as well as other designs.
This has been an adventure and from the response I received when it was launched at Stitches East and again this weekend at the Meet the Breeds in NYC, it is a winner. The general comments ranged from “Awwww,” to “This is so cute,” to “I love it.” To make it easier for everyone to get quickly, it is available through Amazon, Amazon UK, and Amazon EU, ready to go.
For those of you in the New York area, I would love to meet you. I will be speaking to the Big Apple Knitters at their December Meeting. We will be talking about intarsia and the fun and ease of creating pictures within your knitting.
I am taking a week to decompress before starting my next project. Suffice to say, there will be more books with puppies and kittens in the future as well as many more patterns and dog breed books
