These knits are beautiful basics. None are so intricate as to be difficult, and all are handsome enough to please even the grumpiest of friends. The book is organized according to how long each project takes to make, so you won't be caught with a half-finished project at deadline time.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When STC Craft published Joelle Hoversons Last-Minute Knitted Gifts in 2004, the response was overwhelming and today there are nearly 100,000 copies of this classic in print. Six years later, Hoverson is full of fresh, new ideas for beautiful gifts. So STC proudly presents More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts: an elegant collection of 30 projects organized according to the time it takes to complete them, from less than two hours to more than eight. Among the projects featured are sachets, bracelets, ornaments, mittens, gloves, hats, sweaters, baby blankets, and throws.

 

Understanding that knitters today love to personalize their projects but also need guidance along the way, Hoverson showcases many of the projects in several colors and yarn weights, and with optional embellishments and creative ideas for gift-wrapping.

Synopsis:

This book has so many fun projects. As soon as I brought it home, I began knitting. Some of the projects are perfect for learning new techniques. Since they are small, they don't take too long to complete, and you have a nifty gift when you're finished. My favorites so far are the knitted lavender sachets, a clever design utilizing double knitting.
