50 Yards of Fun: Knitting toys from Scrap Yarn by Rebecca Danger
Genre: Intermediate knitting

I found this book at a local ACMoore or maybe a Michaels (Can’t remember which). And since I’m a sucker for little crafts and using up remnants, and since I had a coupon, I snatched it up.
I absolutely love it.
I’ve made two of the little critters so far (a fish, and a cat) but I crochet them, using the same basic body and shaping methods. I want to knit the ninja for my sister and the bowling set for my mom.
The characters and toys are adorable and enchanting. Each one is photographed and adorably named (Nitro Ninja, Olive-sized Owl, Weensy Woodland Friend, etc) and the patterns are really easy to follow.
