If you're weary of knitting projects that actually produce something useful, behold the bowsers. You can knit yourself a plethora of pooches, a coterie of canines. From yarn yappers to woolen woofers, there are 25 breeds to choose from. Photos of the finished product have been posted a few places online, so be sure to check for your preferred breed. Some of the patterns don't result in accurate likenesses. Some of them don't even look like dogs. The English Bull Terrier looks like a rotund reindeer. The Labrador looks like a rodent. The Red Setter looks more like a sweater. And the Cocker Spaniel looks like -- Farrah Fawcett in the '70s?Some especially good likenesses are the Afghan Hound, Standard Poodle, English Bulldog, and Old English Sheepdog. The Pug is cute, but its eyes make it look in need of an exorcism. I know at least one page of errata is available online, so be sure to look for it before beginning your project.
