i found this book in a second-hand store and had to grab it before some other pathetic dog obsessed person did. it is just too funny isn't it? it is a serious book though - with actual patterns and advice. really.
don't you just love those tag lines .... 'stop vacuuming and start knitting'.
i have a small problem though. she has descriptions of the hair/fur of each dog breed and apparently my cross Ridgeback does not have a suitable coat for 'spinning'. heart broken. all is not lost though - perhaps i could pass my pooch's fur to other dog fur knitters, her advice to me is '....not suitable for spinning, but it would add a sprinkle of distinction to less courageous fibers'. that's my girl - distinctive.
gosh, it gets better. i just read the introduction - it starts .... 'when we began "knitting with dog hair" most people thought we were a few puppies short of a litter'. hee hee.
wouldn't you love to meet Kendal Crolius and Anne Black Montgomery the two kooky people that thought this would be a great idea for a book? i certainly would - i think they'd be my kind of people.
please feel free to contact me for information on the suitability of your dogs coat for spinning and knitting and i will consult the book for you. bliss.
