Gifted: Lovely Little Things to Knit and Crochet
by Mags Kandis
Ok, who will like this book and who will NOT?
1. Knitters who like to felt. There are small projects like little hearts to use as pincushions, egg cozies, and other doo-dads. Also felt medallions to embroider and ornament baby wear.
2. Felters who want to do little projects. I mean, little.
3. Anyone with kids who want to try small felting projects
4. People who like fiber-related Christmas or holiday fiddle-faddle
Who will not like it? Anyone who wants bigger stuff or thinks they could figure all this out on their own and not buy a book.
I liked the pincushion idea (the hearts are cute, they could be addictive.) The baby sweater is different and quite modern-retro. The egg cozies are nice--we eat boiled eggs and the little warmers are very pretty and stylish. Other than that however...well, not my kind of thing.
