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).

Simple gifts. Nothing exciting. Easy to make. Cabled tea cozy.

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.
