Got this for Christmas and have barely put it down. Packed full of projects that take from a couple of hours to a day or so to complete, and it's pretty much perfect. There's stuff for the novice knitter and sewing fan, and also baking items that are absorbing for the skilled but not so technically challenging that it would put a newbie off trying. All in all, a great book that I'd really recommend. And, the price tag helps too!
