Although inside the complete project not so adorable, but quite a good try...
Just treat it a special items.... :-)

But I personally feel, it lot better look than "Best In Shows - Cat version"

Sorry to the other reviewer, but i have to disagree completely!! I recieved this beautiful hardcover book really quickly and in wonderful condition. I was amazed at just how good this book really is! Each of the dogs are beautiful, and really wonderful representations of their breeds. I think it is a fantastic book and can't recommend it enough!!

I was hoping that this book was going to be full of cute dogs to create - I was disappointed by the quality and look of the finish products in it. Probably won't knit any of them and the book will end up in a charity shop eventually.

Review quote

For all those needle-clacking members of 'stitch and bitch' knitting groups around the country, a selection of patterns for the cutest toy dogs in the world. Mad but absolutely brilliant. --Reviewed in Bella magazine, 4th January 2011
