Another decent book from Debbie Bliss. I know there are many who simply *adore* her work, but much of the time I find her to be just a smidge "too cute!" for my tastes.

Lots of "cosy home" sorts of things in the book, and text is well-written and presented. superb production values and lovely pictures, and a nice amount of basic information made this fairly enjoyable to peruse, but I won't be buying a copy any time ssoon. Nothing new or particularly interesting, but a good mix of designs, includ
Wide variety of gift making ideas, but not the best knitting patterns because I much prefer the One-Skein Wonders series of books like Luxury Yarn One-Skein Wonders: 101 Small Indulgences where most of my past Holiday gifts have come from.
The photos are nice.
I liked the Garter stitch Jacket for newborn to 9 months size (page 89) as well as the super cute cotton Sun Hat (page 92) and the Cabled vest for 3 months to 24 months (page 124).
The cabled open finger mittens for adults was cute, but so c
Quite good! Some very cute and very pretty items with surprisingly simple instructions. Most patterns are knit flat, which I prefer. One thing that looks troublesome (I'm in the middle of a pattern right now) is that the finishing instructions look a bit scanty. We'll see, and perhaps I'll revise this review . . . that would be a pretty grave sin in a knit-flat book.
I tend to like Debbie Bliss patterns, although her style does get a bit cutesy for my taste at times. However, I love how her yarns knit up, and the patterns in this book looked easy to follow. I marked a couple for possible gift-giving.
I liked this more than other "gift" themed knitting books. I plan on making that sweet knitted tie as my next project. Solid and not too cutesy or whimsical (mostly).

So little time to do some of these great projects!
A selection of knitting projects that would make usually welcomed gifts that can be completed fairly quickly. The book has a convenient introduction to Debbie Bliss yarns and abbreviations as well as a charming anecdote about a beginning knitter who fashioned a gift from samplers of patterns. The categories include items for women, men, babies, young children and the home. Interesting patterns include: rice stitch scarf, which is suitable for men, cable arm warmer, and garter stitch baby jacket.
Not awful, but I only found one thing that I really thought I might take the time to knit before returning this to the library. I will not be purchasing my own copy.
@ stars for my reference that I wont be making any projects from this book. And not because there aren't nice ideas just not to my taste and gift needs.

Nice collection of classic-looking designs. Love the knit tie for men, romper for baby/toddler and baby shawl.

Some very nice projects but beyond my current knitting skill level. Keep this in mind for later.
Nothing new here. No project that motivated or inspired me to pick up the needles.
I love Debbie Bliss, but I couldn't find anything exciting in this book.
Nice pictures, but the patterns were not that interesting...
A cute book with some cute patterns.
