Overview

Offering more than 30 projects for any occasion--birthday, anniversary, thank-you, get well, bon voyage, new baby, Christmas, and more--this collection focuses on small knitting projects that can be completed in a relatively short period of time. The classic to contemporary projects are from a variety of top knitwear designers, including Nancy Bush, Mags Kandis, Pam Allen, Véronik Avery, Chrissy Gardiner, Marta McCall, Kathy Merrick, and Kristin Nicholas. Sample projects include garments and accessories for the entire family, gifts for four-legged friends, and items for the home, ranging from beautiful hats, bags, scarves, socks, mittens, and gloves to unique gifts such as a felted oven mitt, napkin rings, baby blocks, a hobby horse, a catnip mouse, a car seat–friendly baby bunting, and floral ballet shoes. With detailed instructions and helpful photos, these projects are perfect for knitters looking for small projects to keep or give away.

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

Knitter's Review
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.
