Bookstore Adventure March 29, 2012

I am always disappointed by the lack of knitting books in some of the bookstores I go to. However, today I saw one that caught my eye!  The book is called, Knit Your Own Dog, by Sally Muir & Joanna Osborne. I skimmed through the book and loved the photography! I was also amazed by how realistic some of those knitted dogs looked!

For those cat lovers out there, there’s also a book called, Knit Your Own Cat by the same authors.

I didn’t end up buying the book but maybe I will in the future :) The bulldog in the book was SUPER cute so I might knit it one day and my real dog can play with it.

It is amazing what you can find on Etsy! This blog is dedicated to all my Science and non Sciency friends! Imagine this…. knitting combined with Biology!!!

aKNITomy is a store on Etsy that sells dissected knitted animals such as frogs, rats, bats, fetal pigs, and even aliens! I find this disturbing but I am also deeply DEEPLY fascinated!  I wish I dissected these knitted animals instead of the real ones in University. Below are pictures taken from

Happy first day of Spring everyone! I am currently working on a new project and hopefully I can complete it by the end of March (or sooner!).

Hints: I am super pretty, come in many colours but I am only around during certain times of the year. I can grow up to be very tall and I am great for every occasion :)

This is Flappy the little penguin… He likes to fly (or at least pretend to by jumping up in the air really high), sit up high in the tree, and make snowmen. Sometimes he likes to play hide in seek and his favourite hiding spot is in the bushes (I’m not sure why since the twigs always poke right through him). In addition, Flappy sports a matching toque and scarf and his favourite shades are black and white.
