Overview

Women who love to knit are determined to find time to practice their craft, despite the many roles they fulfill throughout the day. They knit while traveling or commuting, while waiting for their kids, while socializing. Times like these call for projects that are easily transportable and have stitch patterns that are simple to memorize.
 
Véronik Avery has created 30 such projects for Knitting 24/7, a collection of stylish clothing and accessories that make use of those “in-between” times when we’re busy, yet our hands are free. Ranging from sweaters, scarves, and shrugs to hats and mitts, the projects represent both what women want to wear and what they actually have time to knit. The book’s gorgeous color photographs capture women in a range of settings—a morning at work, a dinner with friends, a relaxing weekend afternoon—evoking the time of day when each wardrobe item might be worn.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Several of Avery's patterns (including the Salt Peanuts cardigan and the Lace Ribbon scarf) have achieved iconic status over the years, and this collection features the same classic, feminine qualities. The focus is on articles that can be knitted a few rows at a time, but you'd never know that from the finished work. There's plenty of variety in the patterns, which include everything from scarves, wraps, and sweaters to pillows and socks. Several of the patterns are also appropriate for novices looking to stretch beyond the basics.

    Knitting 24/7 30 Projects to Knit, Wear, and Enjoy, On the Go an

    Knitting 24/7 30 Projects to Knit, Wear, and Enjoy, On the Go and Around the Clock by Avery, Véronik
    Publisher: ISBN: 9781453268124
    I wanted to read this book especially because I think I can and probably have knitted 24/7 for a few days, even in my sleep.
    Such classics and everyday items as wristers, socks/slippers, bags, skirt, vest, scarf, hats, pillow, shrug/shawls,
    All are very easy to understand directions, and diagrams, some charted instructions, kitchen accessories and much more...
    The book is divided into sections: A.M., P.M, and Weekend wear but you can really wear these any day, in my opinion.
    My favorite would be the mesh top as I could wear it with many other blouses under.
    The book also includes an appendix and very detailed section on the stitches and other shortcuts. Very well laid out pattern instructions, easy to put your finger on a specific thing in each pattern.
    I also like how the patterns chosen look sensational because of the twists and cabling involved but they are essentially just a basic 4 row repeat so these are not hard to do.

    Book Review: A perfect book for the On the Go Mom. As a knitter,

    Book Review:
    A perfect book for the On the Go Mom. As a knitter, I know how it feels to want to knit 24/7 but realistically as a mother we know that is literally impossible. There are dishes, and laundry to be done that are keep you from your knitting. What about those moments in between where you could easily be multitasking, like, standing in line at the post office, or commuting on the train to drop your daughter off at dance.




    There are great moments to sneak in some knitting and this is a book full of patterns that make great projects for those in-between moments. They have consistent patterns that are easily memorized and can be worked up while keeping your Mommy ears on instead of having your mind buried in a pattern. All these projects can be knitted quick and easy, which makes this a great book for the busy mothering knitter.




    I give this book 5/5
