I know they say not to judge a book by it's cover, but I will be the first to admit that the reason I originally checked this book out because the cover caught my eye (and who wouldn't love those adorable cat pillows?). The book itself, however, is a wonderful knitting book which I would recommend to knitters of all levels.
I was especially fond of the fingerless lace mitts. The pattern was easy to follow and would be great for someone beginning with knitting lace. The mitts were knit flat and then sewn together up the side, leaving a hole for the thumb. The mitts are very attractive and I receive a lot of compliments on them! I chose a soft alpaca wool to go on my hands, but in the future I may choose something a little more sturdy, as alpaca tends to grow (or stretch) over time.
Overall I found the patterns very easy to read and creative. I am excited to try making a cat pillow in the future!
This is available as a book in our library.
