Pretty Pets to Knit

By Twistie

I’ve never had a pet guinea pig. Having been cat-owned all my life, I learned early on that adorable little rodents and felines just don’t mix very well. I did have a couple hamsters and rats along the way, but guinea pigs never happened in part because of… well, between the fun of cleaning cages and the stress of trying to keep the rodents and all those felines away from one another, I made my choice.

But Gertie up there, she’s another story. She’s knitted. If the cat gets at her, I could make another. What’s that you say? Make? Not buy? That’s right! What’s for sale on Etsy isn’t the finished product, but a pattern to knit her up. Just add needles and mohair! At $4.50 for the pattern, you’re in great financial shape to make as many guinea pigs as you please.

Gertie is the brain child of DebiBirkinDesigns. Oh, and if you haven’t dreamed of guinea pigs, you can always choose her budgies, meerkat/ferret, mole, or even a dormouse complete with tea pot to take a nap in. In point of fact, that last one is a tea cozy.

Then again, the shipping is free, since the patterns are sent in the form of PDFs. Collect the whole set!

    Along the same lines, I really love these two books: Amigurumi Knits (I made my own JACKALOPE!) and Knit Your Own Dog. Knitted dogs don’t poo on the rug!
