After not too long a wait, my Nookcolor arrived yesterday. It is beautiful. Pandora streaming music, kids books that read themselves to me (not all, but some until the upgrade), magazines galore, full internet browser...all for only $249. I love it. It is like my husband's IPad in lots of ways, but is so much cheaper. No monthly fees. The next thing I am waiting for are the cookbooks with embedded video instructions. Wow. Christmas is officially here and I am over the moon with gadget love. I can even post to Facebook with it. You gotta know that makes a book blogger's heart sing.
This book had projects for everyone. From felting, to regular knitting and crochet, this book has many different styles to inspire you.
Gifted is based on the premise of small, quick gift items and I can think of no other book for some fast holiday knitting or crocheting. The Felted Heart Milagros project on the cover is one of my favorites! The instructions are easy to understand for an intermediate knitter such as myself.
The projects are arranged in two groups. Gifts for the Body focuses on wearable projects. There are scarves, earmuffs, hats and more. Gifts for the Soul has scissor sleeves,a pincushion and adorable crochet flowers.
If you are trying to learn a new technique, this book is for you. The projects are small and portable and work out quickly.
There are recipes from author Mags Kandis and great photographs to inspire you while you knit one of a kind gifts that are sure to delight someone special.
