Wonderful Wednesdays Reviews {Farmyard Knits by Fiona Goble & Giveaway}

This week on
"Wonderful Wednesdays Reviews,"
 I was able to review...
Farmyard Knits
by Fiona Goble.

I'm not sure if you remember but I have several knitting books by Fiona Goble.
She is another one of my favorite knitting authors. Her books come to life and she has created some amazing farmyard projects.
Hi-ho, the dairy-o meets knit one, purl one in the latest book of adorable toy knits from best-selling knitting author Fiona Goble.
Fiona Goble’s Farmyard Knits takes you through a day in the life of a farm as knitters of all skill levels create a farmer and his wife, their cat and sheep-herding dog, and a whole host of charming farmyard animals, from the rooster that crows to greet the day, to the cows slowly chewing their cud in the meadow, to the horse eating hay in its paddock, the pigs playing in their pen, the sheep who are herded into the barn as night falls, and a sly fox that prowls around the coop after dark while the hens are snug in their roosts. You can even knit an adorable tractor for the farmer to ride on, as well as a playmat with a variety of fields and a pond to set the scene.  The little farmyard knits make perfect gifts or toys for children as you teach them about animals and life on the farm. Each pattern begins with a list of materials needed and includes step-by-step instructions, along with full-color photographs of the completed dolls. An illustrated overview explains all the stitches and techniques. More than just a knitting book, the gorgeously illustrated pages of Farmyard Knits also tell the story of the farmer and his wife as they go about their daily chores.

About the author:
Fiona Goble is an accomplished knitter and the author of many craft books and articles. She also owns a small business making woolen bags and home accessories. She lives in England.
In my opinion:
Farmyard Knits is such a cute knitting book. Each page tells a story about the farm and its characters. I loved how it started how with a knitting guide. Then, the story began at daybreak and continues throughout the day with different jobs that the farmers had to take care of. My favorite was the sheep and lamb as well as Bess the Collie. Super cute and enjoyable at the same time. I'm a huge fan of Fiona Goble's knitting work. She is amazing and you can tell she has fun with knitting. She is very creative! I definitely recommend her books.
