Lobsters. They’re Not Just Food…by author Katy Lee — 11 Comments

  1. I loved this post!! I would love to win one of these knitted crustaceans. He is adorable!! A friend of mine gave me a crocheted, I think!, poodle made with Virginia Tech colors, maroon and orange. I would love to learn how to knit and crochet animals. Is it very hard to learn? What would you consider the easiest animal to be a starting project? Thanks for the chance to win!

    • My first knitted animal was a small and very simple horse. When I say simple I mean simple. Nothing like this lobster, but my point is there is always a pattern out there for every level.

  2. Thanks so much for your charming post. I am just fascinated by you actually knitting lobsters, because I am struggling with basic stitches right now. Anything beyond a potholder is beyond me! 🙂

  3. I learned how to hook my yarn and make a basic chain stitch crocheting. I am on my way! Lol. Is the lobster knitted out of wool? Is wool easier or harder to work with?

    • Yay! Love to hear this! Keep it up. 🙂 The lobster pattern calls for wool, but I used a blend with a little wool. I felt a little softer to me. Although, not all wool will feel scratchy. Merino wool in example is nice and soft.

  5. Loved this post. What a great idea and catchy blog title “Lobsters. They’re Not Just Food. . . They can be Knitted.” Who knew? But about Katy Lee’s book “Warning Signs” is a must read. Katy keeps the romantic suspense threaded throughout a well-told-tale. it is easy to fall in love with her characters, as easy as it is to fall for that knitted lobster. What fun!

    • Thank you, Gail, for stopping by and for sharing your opinion of Warning Signs. 🙂 So glad to hear you liked it. 🙂

  6. Hi, Katy!

    Have never eaten a lobster, & don’t know much about them – thanks for the interesting post! Would love to win the knitted lobster for one of my nieces & nephews – thanks for the giveaway opportunity!


    • Hi Bonnie,

      Thank you for commenting. I hope someday you have an opportunity to give lobsters a try. With butter or in some type of casserole or bisque.

      Thank you for stopping by!
