I usually borrow a copy of any knitting or crochet book from my public library before I opt to buy it for myself. I also ask my public library to buy books for its collection when I see or hear about ones that sound worthwhile to have available to borrow. I like to read amazon's book reviews before recommending purchases.
I like the lack of fussiness, the attitude of fun and love of color in Ms. Hoverson's creations. I'm happy to own her books.
As for the patterns, they are just as nice as in the first Last Minute Knitted Gifts, which I use all the time. There are your typical small items such as hats, scarves and fingerless gloves. Then there are some more unusual patterns such as a knitted basket in 3 sizes. I've wanted a pattern for knitted baskets that are not felted for years and this is exactly what I've been looking for. Another pattern I've always wanted is knitted Christmas ball ornaments and this book includes one with two design variations. There is also a really pretty knitted bracelet, some double knit coasters, a sachet and a cozy for coffee cups. The more time consuming patterns include baby clothes and blankets, a nice zippered men's vest, a beautiful woman's cardigan and an easy pullover. Like the first book, the patterns are all categorized by the time it takes to make them.
Whether you buy this book in the Kindle edition or as an actual book, I'm sure you'll find it a very useful book to have in your knitting library.
