    Weekend time wasters

    In great-grandma's day I imagine that there was time to knit finger puppets, 'egg cozies' and checker boards. Today, however, time (especially for knitting) is precious. Perhaps that explains why my enthusiasm for a book called 'Weekend Knitting' quickly turned to disappointment. I was looking forward to useful knitting projects (yes, I realize how pragmatic and 'un-creative' that sounds) such as sweaters, scarves and hats, slippers, and luscious afghans; and although there were a few of these projects, there also seemed to be a good deal of repetition such as page after page of mittens with little or no variation. I knit for the love of knitting, but when I invest my time and energy I want to have something substantial and beautiful to show for it.

    NOT for beginners

    This is a beautifully styled book with tons of great photographs, but does not have any photographs or line drawings of technique. This is not a book for beginners as everything seemed very complicated. Also there were lots of impractical projects like hard boiled egg cozies.

    Are you a person who likes to read cookbooks and craft books? I know I am. Sometimes I even jump into cooking or creating from these books.

    This book is a crafter's and reader's dream. Falick doesn't just fill the book with patterns and instructions, which are beautiful, but also with short stories and even a few recipes. I can also totally see myself making some of the simpler projects in the book - especially the flower-shaped knitted washcloth (I would probably use it as a coaster). The book is full of simple and more complicated projects for experienced knitters. This is a beautiful book.

    Love the book - have not done any projects but can't wait to. Had too many in the works when I got the book.

    Will try them next set of projects.

    Beautiful photos, variety of projects for all levels!

    I checked out this book from a friend and then decided to buy it for myself. Yes, as the previous review stated they do some some original projects for checker boards, games and finger puppets which are very nice and may make nice gifts but they also have sweaters, a beautiful wrap, scarves, hats, neckwarmers, legwarmers, fingerless mitts in addition to other gloves and mittens and ponchos. All the patterns have a modern look to them...which is the biggest problem I have with knitting books...I want something I can wear that fits todays styles. I've made several of the projects and I love them and so does my family and friends!! Not a big sweater book(i think it contains maybe 2 nice ones) but at least the patterns look NEW. Also some nice tips and stories here and there but not too many where it takes away from the patterns.

    FUN KNITTING PROJECT - SWEATERS!

    I really enjoy purchasing this book. The sweaters are pretty simple to knit. The designs are not too bad. Great pictures and photos. If you're looking for knitting some simple sweaters... this book is for you. Enjoy!

    A beautiful book

    I agree with the other reviewer that this book contains some impractical projects, but it also has some really lovely ones, such as shawls, figerless gloves and handbags. This book also includes other 'knit-bits' such as movies that mention knitting, recipies, and instructions for hand massage. I will knit several projects from this book and just simply enjoy looking through it.
