I guess this was the week of looking at books of adorable and somewhat similar knit things that are a little out of the ordinary (another fun fact: all four of the books I've reviewed in the past few days were written by British authors!). This time it's more cute animals, but instead of going around the world for inspiration, Sarah Keen took on the farm.
Knitted Farm Animals has patterns for 15 cute creatures including chickens (and a rooster, chicks and eggs; perfect for springtime!), a cow, a horse, a donkey and other animals you'd expect. There are also some fun critters you might not think of as living on the farm such as turkeys, bulls and llamas.
These patterns are really cute and should be fun to knit even for newer knitters -- as long as sewing and finishing don't scare you. My daughter has already requested a llama; I'll let you know how it goes.
