This review is from: Last-Minute Knitted Gifts (Hardcover)
This is a wonderful book, I'm really glad I bought it. There is a wide variety of projects, most of which are straightforward. I'm working on the chevron scarf at the moment. It looks amazing, and I'm finding it very easy once I interpretted the abbreviations. This is the 4th scarf pattern I've made, all good enough to give away as gifts, which has boosted my confidence no end. I've also made the bag illustrated on the front cover, just out of ordinary craft cotton, rather than the recommended silk. One area where I have struggled is in replacing the american yarns which aren't available over here, for example with the chevron scarf, but I think this is just my own inexperience. Next I'd like to knit the baby bootees but I don't understand the instructions, so it may take me longer than the guideline 2 hours. I would recommend this book to any knitter, especially novices like myself, as I'm finding it a great way to expand my skills.
