This review is from: Last-Minute Knitted Gifts (Hardcover)
I like this kind of book, it does exactly what the title suggests, gives you a whole host of patterns that can be knitted up quickly and given to people (or kept for yourself). With scarfs, little bags, toys and soft furnishings as well as baby stuff there should be something to suit pretty much everyone, with the patterns laid out clearly with good photographs. Best of all, the projects are divided by time, so you can pick something fast or a little slower depending on your deadline, and there are nice extras like the article on colour combination and useful hints on wrapping and presentation. The airy scarf is my favourite thus far, but I'm sure my friends will be receiving many of these items as time goes by. An excellent mix of the practical and fun, with things suitable for the beginner as well as more advanced knitters.
