Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Thirty-seven patterns. That's huge! And—I can't remember the last time I said this—there's not a loser in the bunch. It's the outside-the-box touches like these that make me appreciate these designs." - KnittingScholar.com

"It's the first knitted gift book to catch my eye in a long time. These projects are classy...they may be whimsical when appropriate, but they're often also subdued and elegant, practical and pretty. They'll stand up tall against any store-bought gift, fitting examples of the full potential of knitted gifts. And best of all, the projects are as knittable as they are attractive. The patterns are well-edited and easy to follow, the photography shows you quite clearly what you're doing, the layout is inviting, and the overall execution is clean and flawless." - Knitter's Review

"Irresistible...There's something here for just about every recipient, knitters of every skill level and projects that need to be completed in every time frame." - About.com Guide to Knitting

"The expected array of outerwear, socks and home decor is all here, but it's the unexpected touches that stand out." - Yarn Market News

"I actually gushed over this book. These patterns are perfect for the woman, man, child, or baby in everyone's lives... A pattern to match virtually every gift-giving opportunity." - KnitPurlGurl.com

"Budd has taken the lesson 'It is better to give than to receive' and done something about it. She has compiled a book of knitting patterns that are irresistible to make and give." - Bangor Daily News

"Quick gratification with stylish, unique projects that run the gamut from simple (scarves) to more advanced (rugs)." - American-Statesman

"5 out of 5 stars. Unusual and inspired knitted gifts for all occasions. I think it should be very popular." - Knitting News

It's the first knitted gift book to catch my eye in a long time. These projects are classy . . . they may be whimsical when appropriate, but they're often also subdued and elegant, practical and pretty. They'll stand up tall against any store-bought gift, fitting examples of the full potential of knitted gifts. And best of all, the projects are as knittable as they are attractive. The patterns are well-edited and easy to follow, the photography shows you quite clearly what you're doing, the layout is inviting, and the overall execution is clean and flawless.
