Publishers Description
Today's knitters are chic, smart-and busy. Although they love to knit and enjoy making gifts for family and friends, they're constantly faced with the challenge of finding enough time to actually finish what they've started. Last-Minute Knitted Gifts solves this problem. Joelle Hoverson, owner of Purl, the hip knitting supply store in downtown Manhattan, has designed more than 30 fun, fresh, beautiful patterns, most of which can be made in less than ten hours-some in as little as two!

Known for her keen sense of color, Hoverson includes instructions for classic gifts like baby booties and bonnets, sweaters, and scarves, plus imaginative options like a cashmere tea cozy, a felted yoga mat bag, floor cushions, and a poncho-surely something for everyone on the gift list. And to make each present extra-special, Hoverson offers easy tips on how to incorporate knitting and other yarn embellishments into the gift wrap.

Simply Elegant  Nov 2, 2008
I purchased this book because I wanted to knit one item in it. After receiving the book I selected many items to knit. The illustrations are nice, and the instructions are clear. These are projects I would be happy to receive and/or give as gifts to friends and family.
Every patter is beautiful  Oct 17, 2008
I've had this book for two years now, and it's still a reference book for me. Normally I buy a book and realize I only like one or two patterns from it, but this one is different. I like every single project in it. I've done all the baby hats and bonnets, the hourglass sweater, and the men's raglan sweater. They all turned out great!
Enjoyable to browse through  Sep 20, 2008
This book has lovely photography and is a pleasure to look through. Perhaps it is unrealistic to expect to find a book full of knitted gifts that one could make in a short time that aren't for babies.

In any event, there are 33 patterns in the book, 27 of which fall into the "8 hours or less category." Of the 27 that are 8 hours or less, 25 are knitted. Of these 25, 7 (or 8 depending on interpretation) are for babies are children.

Of the adult patterns, the short ones include things like a kerchief, Christmas ornaments, potholders, a tea cozy and legwarmers. I found these patterns less that inspiring or less than practical.

However, there are also some patterns I found beautiful, such as the adult hat patterns, the scarf patterns, and some of the "more than 8 hour" patterns.

Basically, it's a lovely book, with many patterns worth knitting, especially if you have a child or baby to knit for. The best adult knits will take a little longer.
Wonderfully done !  Sep 16, 2008
As a hand dyer of yarn, many people ask me what they could make with one or two skeins of yarn. This book has lots of ideas for very nice small projects. Many item you will make for yourself. The only thing that could make these items better is using hand dyed yarn. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and the photos are very well done. Who would not want to receive a cashmere cowl as a gift?
EXCELLENT!!!  Jul 25, 2008
This is an owner alone for the addictive Chevron scarf, but the other patterns are just amazing. Easy and fun to knit - and items that your friends ( & you) will actually want to own! I LOVE this book - one of my favs. You will find yourself going back to it over and over and always finding yet another little nugget to knit!
