Title: Just Like Me Knits
Author: Brandy Fortune
Published by: Potter Craft, 2013
The In-Depth Look:
There are really no words for how adorable this book is. Cute kids. Adorable knits. And then amazing dolls with knits of their own.
Because, really … the whole thing is wonderfully sweet–in the best possible way.
This book is divided into three sections–practical, every-day kind of knits; fun, playful knits for dressing-up and pretending; and accessories like hats and socks.
All the patterns come in two basic ranges–Child-Sized and Doll-Sized, and heaven help me if that’s not part of the cuteness factor here–seeing not only fresh-faced kids in their handknits, but a group of dolls dressed to match. (The doll-sized socks alone…) There are patterns here for girls and for boys, and they’re pretty much all (darn, where’s the thesaurus when I need it) … adorable.
Yeah, I can’t help it. It’s the perfect word for this book–not only in the sense of “cute,” but just because I can’t help but adore the entire thing. The concept (because what kid doesn’t like to dress their dolls like them?), the patterns, and the photos. Oh, the photos are wonderful. Brandy took all of them herself and, having read her blog for years, I am never disappointed in her photos. She takes wonderful shots and the images in this book are perfectly sweet while showing off the patterns well.
Yeah … it’s all adorable. My only real regret is that I don’t have a little person of my own to knit any of these for. Though I really wouldn’t mind having one of these fabulous dolls, though.
This lovely book can be found at Amazon.com.
