Great Little Gifts to Knit
by Jean Moss
Today's knitters are avid—and busy. Although they love to knit for friends and family, and enjoy trying out new patterns and stitch techniques, they're constantly faced with the challenge of finding enough time to complete their projects. Great Little Gifts to Knit solves this problem. Jean Moss, author of Sweet Shawlettes, has designed 30 fun, fresh, beautiful patterns that incorporate traditional knitting techniques from all over the world: from Fair Isle and Aran knits to Peruvian intarsia patterns and Japanese shadow knitting techniques. Beautiful, clever, and, most of all, quick to knit, these projects offer knitters a chance to learn and experiment with new techniques—all in projects that can be made in less than a weekend.
*I received a review copy of this book from Netgalley*
I really wanted to like this book more than I did. I love the idea of quick knits that I can make with my leftover stash yarn. Even better if they can be gifts for someone else. I found the patterns in this book a little...lacking. I just wasn't in love with any of the patterns or the photos of the finished result. It would probably be better for someone who likes to make small knick-knack items or someone who has kids. I'd rather spend my time on something that inspires me.
