This is a great book if you're looking for a quick project, an inspiration, a way to use up a skein of yarn that you just couldn't resist. Do you need a Christmas or birthday gift or want an easy hat, shawl or sock pattern? It's in here! I love this book and it's mates and I think it belongs in every knitter's library. ( )
