If you didn't get to Westminster this year, bring it to you!

Aside from serious adventures in fiberart, for which go here I definitely have to get into silly stuff, and here's the latest treat: Knit your own dog!



excellent pictures, nice patterns, and knowledgeable about dogs, too.




What I liked so much is that it's set up like Westminster, the big national dog show in the US, with the different groupings: hounds, nonsporting, working, etc., hilarious, and there's a parade of finished dogs there, too. I can't quite decide who to knit first. But this is a treat waiting for me since finishing Penguin Pete a while back.

Nobody to mention this to the Dollivers, who will all vote on a different dog then want one each. Nor to Elton who's not sure if he likes dogs really. They tend to bark when he's working on his arpeggios and put him off.

Hilarious looking knitting book. I might check out the library and see if I can find a copy. I love the terrier on the cover.

These look like so much fun - wonder what breed you are planning to enter into your own Westminster show?
