I have 2 of claire garland's other books,("knitted babes" and "dream toys"),and I like them both very much. When I saw "knit and purl pets" I fell in love with adorable pictures of the projects in the book so I bought it. Now I realize that you can't judge a book by the way it looks. When I started knitting the projects I quickly discovered that the directions contain a lot of errors and missing information in critical places. I'm an experienced knitter so I was able to fill in the blanks in some cases, but not all.
I won't open this book again, it's too frustrating.
Maybe they will come out with corrections later, I hope so.
