Wouldn't it be nice to knit gifts for the children this year? Time's running short, but some of the projects in the book review are easy and quick. They will definitely be remembered. Read more here.

Do you need a gift for a quilter? Stash Envy is a funny book of essays about quilting. Even though I was in a hurry, I couldn't help reading it for 15 minutes in the bookstore. I laughed out loud.

New Knits on the Block: A Guide to Knitting What Kids Really Want
New Knits on the Block: A Guide to Knitting What Kids Really Want
by Vickie Howell

I hesitated to review a knitting pattern book, since I cannot vouch for each pattern and patterns are essentially the book. But this book suprised me and charmed me. There are 25 projects for children. No sweaters and scarves, just costumes and toys and silly things for kids.

The projects are mostly beginner to intermediate. They're rated by how much time needed to complete the project. Here's some of the patterns included:

  • Fireman hat
  • Mermaid outfit
  • Unicorn hat
  • King's crown
  • Tool set with pouch
  • Super kid cape
  • Ancient Egyptian outfit
  • Knight costume
  • Pirate bath set
  • Alien tooth fairy pillow
  • Robot jammie bag
  • Hawaiian oufit
  • Viking costume
  • Sleeping bag

This book assumes that you can knit. The first chapter shows special techniques like felting (used in a wizard's hat) and how to knit i-cord. You may recognize the author from Knitty Gritty, a knitting show on DIY Network.

Ready to knit something unique for the kids in your life? I think you'll be pleased with this wonderful book.
