Most knitters use their hobby to create gifts for others, and if you're looking for some new ideas to try, this is a great collection for you. Knitted Gifts offers over 30 contemporary project ideas for different occasions, such as birthdays, anniversaries, new babies and Christmas. Gifts include bags, socks, oven mitts, napkin rings, baby blocks, a catnip mouse, ballet shoes and more. When writing this book, Ann Budd asked knitters to come up with unusual and inspired projects that they would like to give, and this is a collection of the best ideas. But that doesn't mean that you have to hand all of your knitting over once it's finished... perhaps you deserve a nice knitted gift yourself.* Knit Today *
Ann Budd asked a range of top designers what knitted gifts they'd most like to give - or receive - and compiled the results in this compelling project book. There are nearly 40 ideas for any-occasion gifts, from speedy bookmarks and coffee-cup cosies to more involved projects such as an heirloom baby blanket. There are great gift suggestions for babies, children, men and women, from accessories and toys to small garments. Clever twists on time-honoured designs (such as gloves with thumb flaps for dedicated text-messagers) make these patterns special.* The Knitter *
