Gifted, Lovely Little Things To Knit & Crochet is the name of one of the most recent publications from Interweave Press. Doesn’t it have an inviting cover?
Mags Kandis has created a very attractive array of knit and crochet items that will make wonderful gifts for those special people in your life. The book is divided into two sections, “Gifts for the Body” and “Gifts for the Soul”. The projects are ALL beautiful and charmingly photographed. However, there are only seven crochet patterns!
That said, there is plenty of inspiration in this book even if it’s in the form of knitted projects. In addition to the knitted and crocheted gifts, there are several items that are crafted from or embellished with pre-made woolens that are felted. That sort of recycling is something I appreciate. I especially like the bangles that are wrapped and felted. There are even a couple recipes to include with your handcrafted gift to make it even more special.
If you are one who both knits and crochets, this could be a great addition to your library.
