I’ve been a fan of Sue for a while. Her work is witty, clever and charmingly detailed. Although similar to the ever-popular Amigurumi, Sue distinguishes herself by creating designs that lean towards realistic, while still being utterly adorable.
Although these projects aren’t really for beginners there’s a lot of good tutorial information to help with the trickier bits, and the patterns are clear and well-written. Many of the display pieces aren’t knit, but sewn or built from felt, providing a great way to get non knitters involved, too. I’m imagining that this could be the basic of some good collaborative projects for adults and kids.
If you enjoy small and charming knits, you can’t go wrong with any of Sue’s books, and this latest book is another winner.
