New Book: Beastly Knits by Lalla Ward

Romana II wrote a knitting book?! Actually, she wrote two. Beastly Knits was the first one, written in 1985 (Fowl Knits followed in 1988). It contains 29 sweater patterns, each with a unique animal design, modeled by Lalla’s family and friends (minus Douglas Adams, who I would have loved to have seen in the turtle sweater). Neither title is in print in the US anymore but used copies are available through Amazon and eBay.

I haven’t knitted a sweater yet (tried to once this summer, gave up after the fourth time I dropped a stitch in the first ten rows) , but this book has given me plenty of ideas to return to.
