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.

The expected array of outerwear, socks and home decor is all here, but it's the unexpected touches that stand out.
KnitNet
One of the prettiest, most useful and inspiring books of small projects to be offered in recent years.
About.com Guide to Knitting
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.

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.

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.
