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.

Yes. I admit it. I am addicted to color. Color everywhere – in my home, in my arts, in my knitting. I am a total and complete addict. And you know what? I have NO intention to 12-step it away!

And then, of course, there is design. Fibers, textures, unusual lines. All these things are important to me. And there a boat-ton of patterns I have in my stash that make full use of all of these lovelies. But you know what? I would have to live to be 500 to make all these things – and sometimes I can’t even get the time to make one. Sigh.

With that as the case, I am thrilled to have More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. Sometimes you need small items for friends, birthday gifts, that sort of thing. And sometimes, when you are really feeling hammered by life, when nothing ever seems to be done and complete, well, being able to finish just one thing can sooth and calm the mind and make life better. This is the perfect book to reach that goal. From the ultra-simple, like the Reusable Hot Coffee-Cup Sleeve – it only takes about an hour to finish – to the Bright Stripes Blanket – 1800 yards of beautiful bright yarn and a longer finish time, but easy-peasy garter stitch – well, I love this little book!

The instructions are clear and Joelle gives ideas for different fibers and colours to make the same item for different people fit each person’s personal style. For me, the Toe-Up Socks pattern is going to be my go-to pattern for socks (I run around with just socks on all the time, holes are a given… ). The book also includes excellent instructions for “how-tos,” everything from binding on to binding off with Kitchner Stitch.

Highly recommended for everyone from the beginner to the advanced knitter who is looking for simple projects that bring smiles!

I received this book from the publisher in return for a realistic review. All thoughts are 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.
