Publisher Comments:

Today's knitters are chic, smart-and busy. Although they love to knit and enjoy making gifts for family and friends, they're constantly faced with the challenge of finding enough time to actually finish what they've started. Last-Minute Knitted Gifts solves this problem. Joelle Hoverson, owner of Purl, the hip knitting supply store in downtown Manhattan, has designed more than 30 fun, fresh, beautiful patterns, most of which can be made in less than ten hours-some in as little as two!

Known for her keen sense of color, Hoverson includes instructions for classic gifts like baby booties and bonnets, sweaters, and scarves, plus imaginative options like a cashmere tea cozy, a felted yoga mat bag, floor cushions, and a poncho-surely something for everyone on the gift list. And to make each present extra-special, Hoverson offers easy tips on how to incorporate knitting and other yarn embellishments into the gift wrap.

This is my "go-to" when I need a gift for someone - or myself. The patterns are for fairly basic items with enough "new twists" to keep it interesting. It is organized by how long it should take you to make each item which I found to be really helpful. Great pictures and excellent instruction! I dont buy that many knitting books . . . .but this one has proven to be a real investment.

I just love this book. Most of the patterns are super easy, hence why they are last minute. The photos are great and the instructions are simple and easy to follow. I've made a few of the items and given them as gifts, they were well received which is always nice.

1st printing is riddled with typos/errata. These are corrected in the 2nd and 3rd printings, but if you get stuck with a first printing, do consult the errata sheet at www.purlsoho.com
