I have become a huge fan of the Knitmore Girls podcast, and I often feel that it is the allure of listening to this mother/daughter team on my iPod that gets me to the gym for my workout! Along with their discussions about 'what's on the needle', 'when knitting attacks' and 'straw into gold' Jasmin and Gigi also review knitting books, most of which I find irresistible. The girls recently reviewed "Knitted Monsters": they liked it, and so did I, so I ordered it. I really love it!! I shared it with my knitting group, and all of the grandmas agreed that it was good!
The author, Rebecca Danger, writes her introduction and preliminary instructions as if she is sitting across the table from you in a coffee shop and just shootin' the breeze. I love it! Then she proceeds to offer patterns for various monsters, including pictures, descriptions, and names of each monster. Look at this:
That's our little Charlie!!! Well, you know I was hooked when I saw that!!! LOL So my darling little Charlie will have a monster or two to decorate his little world!
