NEW IN PAPERBACK
The growing popularity of meerkats over the last few years has elevated them to something approaching cult status, and now these playful creatures have been immortalised in yarn by Sue Stratford, who has created 20 fun meerkat characters to knit. All of the meerkats in this book are based on the same easy-to-follow pattern, which is then transformed into a beach babe, rock star, bride, gardener, golfer, skier - to name just a few- by simply using different coloured yarns and dressing them in different knitted outfits.
As well as being lucky enough to spend her time thinking up and knitting new designs, Sue also owns and runs The Knitting Hut, a small but perfectly formed yarn store and online shop selling pattern books, kits and yarns. She teaches knitting and crochet workshops as well as offering advice to customers and loves sharing her skills with others. Her mind is always full of new ideas, often inspired by the beautiful yarns stocked in the shop. Sue lives in Milton Keynes with her husband, five children and a selection of pets.www.theknittinghut.co.uk
