dissapointed Jan. 25 2011
By love to knit - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Love it! Feb. 23 2011

I like a lot of the patterns in here.
Cavaet: There are errors and that would be okay. But the only place i could find the errata is to go to the publisher and they had to send them to me thru an email? Seems there has to be an easier way?

Faulty directions May 12 2011
By Kathryn P. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the creatures they offer for projects BUT when I tried the cat I found the directions to be semi-awful. They tell you to save 5 stitches on a safety pin to be worked later as the tail. Then when it's time to knit the tail, they say slide 7 stitches from safety pin to make tail. Okay, which is it? 5 or 7?? I find mistakes like that very frustrating. I haven't tried any of the other patterns.
PS That's not the only problem but I can't quite remember the other frustrations I faced.

We need the corrections - please! March 31 2011
By E. Vegvary - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What an adorable collection of knitted critters! The pictures are great - the projects both fun and challenging! BUT there are corrections needed - I began the white hen and ended up frustrated beyond words. I've written to the publisher and not heard back although they promise a 24 hour turnaround. We NEED the corrections posted online! The author has not included a M1 in her abbreviations and one must guess how she wants an increase made. There is an error in the chicken pattern and I can't find it. HELP!!!

Knit anilmals June 5 2011
By jangoin - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a beginning knitter and have recently found patterns by English designer Alan Dart. Saw this book and thought the price was good so I ordered it. Unfortunately unlike Alan Dart, this designer uses DPN for every pattern. I'm not willing to do that technique so this is not very useful for me. If you are comfortable with double pointed needles, this book is OK.
