This book has some beautiful items in it, and it lives up to its name. Despite me being a slow knitter, I was able to knit up a few projects from it in the crunch time right before Christmas! I still have many patterns in there to keep me busy, and I'm now eying her first knitted gifts book. I like this one better than the sewing book.

This book has something for everyone. Love is not a strong enough word to describe what I feel for Joelle Hoverson, and her patterns. From the quirky and stylish, to the fabulous. I love that the book is divided in the amount of time it takes to knit by section. So there are several items that take a mere 2 hours of knitting time. Of course, it takes me longer, but the results are uniformly fantastic. I had borrowed this book from a friend, but spent so much time poring over it, that I felt the need to buy my own.

I'm a new knitter so I'm keen to learn & try new things and this book fills that need. The first item I made was the "pretty lacy scarf" that is knit in the round. The result was absolutely beautiful and I kept it for myself. I plan to make several of these along the way to give as gifts -- as the book suggests.

As a new knitter I certainly don't expect to finish the items in the time they suggest but that really doesn't matter. I like the patterns, the variety of items and that the items are suitable for beginners like me, intermediate or beyond. I've also made one of the cowls (very pretty and quick) and am just now working on one of the little knit baskets.

I'll be making much more from this book.

Deserves Ten Stars Aug. 16 2010
By Sandra H. Elston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I waited in anticipation to Joelle's follow up of "Last Minute Knitted Gifts' and was not disappointed. If I could rate this ten stars, I would do so. I have to wear a tracheostomy tube in my throat to breathe, and on page 99 there are patterns for the most beautiful (and soft) cowls one in my position ever hope for. Not only one, but three designs. How wonderful! As I slowly turned each page, what a "delight"...This book far exceeds it's name. Cannot wait to rush to LYS tomorrow and scoop up yarn for several projects I already have tagged as a "must have". I am so delighted with this book, if I could, I would give the author one of the biggest hugs she has ever received. This book has a wide range of projects surely to please any knitter. Whether you are a beginner or advanced knitter, this is the book for you. Thank You JH..Sandy

Inspired Aug. 19 2010
By Stacey M Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I adored Joelle Hoverson's first book and had hoped she'd do another.... The first noticeable thing about the book is the photography - it's beautiful! Well worth the price of the book as a "coffee-table" knitting book. Props to Anna Williams.

She organized the chapters by the typical length of time it would take to complete a project: less than two hour gifts, 2-4 hours, 4-6 and onward. For gifts, this is perfect, nothing worse that thinking a a gift will take 2 hours only to find yourself on the clock for 4 hours and only half way through (sometimes project length is deceptive). Plus a chapter on simple, but clever gift wrapping ideas using yarn. And there are a few pages dedicated to specific stitches & finishing techniques- note there is not a "basics section"- you'll have to pick up knitting basics elsewhere.

Hoverson stretches the gammet of projects - baby & adult socks, cowls, sweaters, vests, accessories, wrist warmers, blanket, scarves... pretty much your basic fair. The book is steeped in classics - nothing I would call trendy. A few projects stand out as "knock your (knitted) socks off"-- pointy elf hat (from the cover), the knitted house, cowl and beret.

I will admit, these are my first impressions. I am simply noting the look of the book and the projects offered. The true test of a knitting book is the quality & detail of the patterns. I will soon update with impressions of working the patterns. Any way you look at it, this is a beautiful addition to your knitting library.

Some projects great...others are not Nov. 26 2010
By lulu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book really has some pretty photos. I have completed two projects so far: Baby Bonnet, and Soft Baskets. I am currently knitting the easy baby cardigan. I'd say that I am an intermediate, but definately not an advanced knitter. The Baby Bonnet is darling to look at, but has a funny fit when you put it on the child. Also, I may be a loose knitter, but I knit the hat with the needles and yarn recommended and the hat was huge on my 8 month old, so I had to unravel the whole thing and knit it again on size 6 needles. The soft basket turned out cute (but is a little floppy knit in the recommended Blue Sky Alpaca Cotton yarn) and so far the baby cardigan is going well, although I wished the pattern was for older babies too (not just newborn-9 months). Anyway, I think some of the ideas in the book are corny (reusable hot coffee-cup sleeve) and others are quite pretty (big lacy scarf)! For a intermediate level knitter the instructions are bit confusing, and most of the patterns that I have tried use a lot of measuring in the instructions instead of telling you how many rows to knit which I personally don't prefer. Also, most of the recommended yarn in this book is quite pricey. So, if you like to use the recommended yarns instead of substituting yarns you might find this to be a problem. All in all I like this book, but I don't love it.
