Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Like Joelle Hoverson and Anna Williams's Last-Minute Knitted Gifts (reviewed on p. 110), this compendium of more than 40 designs for hand knitting includes many projects that would make well-received gifts. Here the authors take a different tack, however. Instead of classifying patterns by the time required to complete them, they divide them up by the types of yarns used. Small projects like hats, scarves, and purses not only knit up faster but require less yarn, so the reader is encouraged to work with luxury fibers like cashmere, quiviut, and silk as well as novelty fibers like eyelash, fur, suede, and ribbon yarns. Public libraries counting a good number of knitters among their patrons will certainly want to buy both this and Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. If you can afford only one, consider Exquisite Little Knits because it has some really smashing patterns for the new lattice, suede, and ribbon yarns and more "knit worthy" projects.

    Exquisite Little Knits

    If you like beautiful knitted accessories buy this book because you are going to LOVE it! The book contains some of the most beautiful patterns from a great knitted belt using suede yarn to a beautiful little evening bag and numerous scarves & shawls. All are rated according to skill level, from beginner to intermediate. Even the intermediate patterns I find easy and you'll want to make EVERYTHING! I can only think of one drawback and that is all projects are knitted with yarn that is pricey and sometimes hard to find. But if you don't mind the cost & have access to a computer you should be able to find most yarns online as I have. The book also gives you an alternative yarn in case the one used can't be located. All in all I can't say enough good things about this little book. I've purchased many books on knitting but this is my absolute favorite! Buy it and you won't regret it. The only thing that will suffer a little will be your wallet!
