These are absolutely adorable! I haven't started any of the projects yet, but I envision knitting the entire book.Update: 4/13/2016So I have now knitted several of the patterns and regrettably must downgrade my initial 5-star rating. Knitted toys are always complicated, and I do think that Ms. Keen has attempted to make them a bit easier for the novice. That being said, the way they are written, I am convinced that Ms. Keen prefers hand-sewing to knitting! Things that do not need to be knitted as separate pieces are written to be knit that way and then sewn together. In some cases this is absolutely necessary, but in other cases there is no reason for it at all. Additionally, some of the clothing and accessory pieces are designed to be much larger than they appear in the photos, leaving gaps and covering shoes, etc., that should not be that way. This is a professionally published book, and frankly, my expectations are much higher than this.Note for experienced knitters: While Ms. Keen's predilection for knitting everything flat and then sewing pieces together has made me (with over 50 years of knitting experience) a bit crazy, that is not the reason for this low review. In fact, I have personally adjusted all the body pieces to knit them in the round on double-pointed needles. In order to do this without making the characters too fat, merely reduce the number of stitches in the row by the two needed for the seam and knit in a circle. This does not, however, keep the clothes from being too large. That is another matter entirely.PS: The reason I still give it three stars is because the characters are, indeed, adorable, and in spite of my grumbling and my constant re-writing of her directions, I'm still knitting the entire collection.
so adorable. can't wait to start on my fairy tale 'dolls'--i know my grandchildren will love them!!!
I can't wait to get started on my favourite fairy tale!!
