Dog knitting and reading



Have to admit to being a little tempted by the dinosaur coat for Mouse, but she's brave enough and so I've opted for a more subdued effect. I quickly knitted up a basic coat from the Patons pattern book and she looks pretty darn cute in it. I will post pictures tomorrow when I've finished reading this

I can't believe I ignored this for so long thinking it would be mediocre at best, or too bland at worst. It is utterly absorbing, and I am already wishing that I'd bought the second book at the same time. If there are no blogs for a few days you know why.

That doggy dinosaur coat is so cute! I will have to check out Twilight - everyone in blogland seems to be reading it at the moment!

I saw this book on LizzieJane Blog and when I heard what it was about I went out and bought the first 3 - there was a 3 for 2 offer on in my local bookshop - its very addictive and can fully understand why people can't put it down. There were also some signed copies of the 4th instalment which I am very tempted to go back and get

Can't wait to see the doggie sweater!
My daughter has read the series, except for the newest one, which she is about to start. I never read them either, thinking they were just teen drivel, although I usually read what she is reading to make sure it's appropriate. The author is mormon, so I figured it wouldn't be too risque. She has an adult novel out now as well, The Host.

I am reading this series of books right now and I have a hard time putting it down, I am into the second book already, aren't they great!

Looks like I may have to make time and start reading again, although I would have to lessen time on the blogs, difficult choice to have to make! I like the top doggy coat, I am not sure I would want to see Mouse as a Mousesaurus! x

Hi Ally,
You came up in my google search I am trying to find the pattern for the dinosaur dog coat and this post came up. I am having no luck finding that Patons knitting book. I am wondering if you see it around in NZ I would be happy to send you some thing for it.
