I love this book!

I've recently got my hands on a copy of Knitted Wild Animals by Sarah Keen, and it is just lovely! Not only are the patterns really cute, but the whole book is simply beautiful to look at with good clear photographs of the finished animals and little facts about each one too (for example, did you know a monkey was once tried and convicted for smoking a cigarette in South Bend, Indiana, USA? Well, now you do!).

I'm really struggling to choose a favourite pattern - I love the elephant, and the hippo, and the warthog, and the tiger... Really, there isn't a bad pattern here. My only problem is finding time to knit one of them (think I'll do an elephant first. No, the hippo... Oh, I don't know!).

If you want to grab a copy for yourself (or a Christmas present for a knitter), head to The Book People who are selling it for just £4.99 - bargain!
