First, let me admit up front: I am a contributor to this book. The editor, Shannon Okey, has collected such a remarkable range of projects that readers are likely to find many that catch their fancy. From dog sweaters and a cat bed to beaded jewelry, hats to unique dishcloths, bags to mittens, readers will find something special to make for loved ones or to keep for themselves. Skill levels vary, providing challenge or ease as required.

Most of the gifts have already been published. Instructions well written and lovely color pictures. Would be a nice gift for someone who is beginning to make little gifts.

I haven't knitted anything out of it yet, but the gifts don't seem to be too difficult. I can't wait to get started!

I was quite disappointed in this book - "Overpriced for what it offered"
I returned it and you graciously refunded my money!
