Summary

Charming yarns spun around a series of artist-made knitted creatures provide entertainment as well as warmhearted life lessons. The curious creatures with unusual problems arrive daily at Dr Knit's laboratory and consulting rooms. The solutions he provides will engage and amuse the reader. Enjoy the tale of the owl whose impaired vision turns out to be due to the fact that he is blind to love, and whose enlightenment clears his vision. Or read about the cupcake whose sadness, despite her impressive shoe collection, is the result of the baker forgetting to make her a heart—easily solved by Dr Knit with a little cake-colored knitted heart. Each case study is illustrated with photographs and illustrations that bring the stories to life, while the patterns for the characters and their accessories are supplied at the back of the book.
