Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This book presents smart and sharp designs, beautifully photographed in color, with step-by-step instructions (and charts, when needed) down to the weaving in of yarn ends. But the adjective quick begs many questions. What’s the length of time involved? Is the pattern truly a speed-knitting one for all needleworkers (especially since most patterns have a range of difficulty between the two and three level out of four)? Designs, on the whole, involve some complicated work, such as cables, Fair Isle, and other intricate stitching. So, it is fair to ask these questions, yet we can’t help but admire the finished projects, such as animal vests for little ones, a cunning leaf headband, the holiday cut-holly hat, and an elegant garter-lace-striped shawl. A quick overleaf at the back of the book reacquaints readers with abbreviations and other basics. --Barbara Jacobs

Just got this book today from Amazon and I love it!!!! There are 10 patterns for little ones--an adorable acorn hat. Sock monkey hat and basesball hat you can do in your team colors. The most adorable little vests too. The best part are the great hats. 18 patterns- four that I have already ordered the yarn for. They are beautiful. There are 8 shawls. Three scarfs (one I have already started) and one cowl. Three socks patterns. One a very simple sock pattern that uses worsted yarn. 9 beautiful mittens or fingerless mitts. Two headbands. Two great felted bags I plan to do-plus felted bowls-a felted elephant. And a cute football dog sweater that is adorable. The pictures are great. The yarn used is worsted.sport and fingering. They call for cascade yarn which I love but you could substitute cheaper or more expensive yarns according your tastes or budget. But the cascade colors are gorgeous. THIS BOOK IS A KEEPER!!!

Most of the item's were scarfs. I have enough of those. I was very disappointed with this book, was looking for more variety.

there are a lot of projects that are really cute and not very hard to make. I have purchased other knitting books before when there is only one or two projects that I wanted it. I have shown this book to other knitters and they liked a lot of the projects too. I am a very slow knitter. So this is perfect for me.

This book contains 60 knitting projects from yarn shops all over the United States. All the projects are relatively small and quick to knit except for a few. There are 11 patterns that I would like to knit myself and that really hit me with their versatility and usefulness.

I like the Slouchy Lace Hat that comes from Knitters Mercantile in Columbus, Ohio. It's knit in a purple colorway and incorporates nice texture with lace stitching. The Fair Isle Stockings from Woolen Collectibles in Kalispell, MT is one of the more intricate patterns, incorporating a three-color Fair Isle pattern - charcoal, white, and blue. The stockings are knee-high and just stunning. The Lacy Cables Hat is knit in a bright emerald green and was submitted by The Woolen Ewe in Plano, TX. It is knit up in a lace and faux cable pattern. It looks very warm. The Two-Way Cable Beanie is in a tweeted colorway, utilizing a heathered yarn. It has horizontal and longitudinal cables. This pattern was submitted Cabled Fiber Studio of Port Angeles, WA. The Faux-Woven Scarf looks like it was spun rather than knit. Submitted by The Spinning Room in Altamont, NY, it is knit with three colors in a linen stitch. The Simple Socks are perfect for winter weather. Redlands Yarn Company in Redlands, CA realizes that a variegated yarn can make sock knitting more interesting. The Striped Dress is perfect for a baby girl. Knit in pink with white stripes, this sleeveless dress was submitted by Pine Tree Yarns in Damariscotta, ME. The Colorblock Reversubke Cap is a stunner. It is grey and red and is knit with a mock cable pattern with a rib on the bottom. The rib and body of the hat are two separate colors. I love the Diamond Fair Isle Hat knit in orange and gold. It was submitted by The Knitting Nest in Austin, TX.

I just think there is nothing really special about the patterns in this book. Nice pictures though. Alot of patterns with colorwork, which I really do not care for, if I did colorwork maybe I would liked it better.

What to make as a gift or a quick knit is between these covers. The projects are varied, but so useful for the recipients. This is the answer for the knitter with a stash of yarn 'left-overs' from larger projects.
