Knitting Book Reviews

Knitted & Felted Toys
by Zoe Halstead

This book has some adorable toys in it, containing 26 patterns some of which are felted. It's a mix of fun animals and cute dolls.

Overall, this is a well put together topic book. It has just a few pages of getting started information with some overview, basic shaping instructions, color knitting info and finishing information. It also has a section on felting. I particularly like that she included step-by-step instructions for felting by hand. As someone who doesn't own a washing machine, this is something I appreciate. Originally published in the UK, understandably the projects all use British yarns.

The projects are cute, beautifully photographed and bright! I have a few I am adding to my queue. So If you like cute toys, the perfect project for those random skeins and leftovers littering your stash this might be a book for you!
