Gifted. Lovely Little Things To Knit and Crochet by Mags Kandis.

These are all, little things to give away, some more intense, some really easy.  Wearables such as hats, mittems, scarves, socks (cool socks!) and wraps. Home dec, including a tea cozy, pin cushion, needle case (sweet!), and laptop cover.

34 projects in all. There are several in this book that are already on my to do list, and they can be on yours too! The arm warmers are the 1st project I want to knit.

Along with all of the yummy knit, crochet and felted items are a few recipes sprinkled in. Like Tomato Jam. Can’t vouch for that one, I’ve never had it, but will definitely try it. Also vanilla sugar, mulling spice mix and ginger syrup. Yum!

This is the coolest book, and it can be yours next Friday, Aug 6, 2010.

Just leave me a comment! And good luck…. Ready… Set…. Go!!!

  70. Michelle on August 3, 2010 12:22 pm

    I’m just learning to knit and this would be my first project book that I actually own!

  71. Anna Garde on August 4, 2010 11:55 am

    I like to knit, crochet, felt, weave and more,
    This book is abundant with ideas I can make for the poor.
    Such variety will keep,
    My mind quiet and true,
    Keeping my hands busy,
    “Gifted” will bring love
    to more than a few!

  72. Nadine on August 5, 2010 5:52 am

    One can never have too many books for new ideas!

  73. Lauren Zimmerman on August 5, 2010 8:28 am

    I have always wanted to learn how to knit, this book looks inspiring!

  74. Caroline G on August 5, 2010 10:37 am

    Love your review (and would love to have Gifted in my knitting library!) :)

  75. Jenlyjen on August 5, 2010 1:22 pm

    thanks much. (:

  76. sherri on August 5, 2010 3:54 pm

    I’m sooooooooo excited!! I just saw this book advertised on Interweave and was thinking it looks perfect for this compulsive knitter who just loves to knit for other people. My specialties are baby knits and dog knits, but who can go past a good scarf or a pair of gloves. And I’ve been experimenting with tea-cosy’s lately. They make such nice gifts!

    Glad to be in like minded company.

  77. Kristi Anne on August 5, 2010 4:26 pm

    this book looks fantastic!!!

  78. Paula Wirfel on August 6, 2010 11:12 am

    I’d love to win this book. I would probably give this as a Christmas gift to my mother-in-law, who has been the sweetest “mother substitute” to me since my own mother passed away. She is much more gifted at the needlearts than I am since I’m just now learning, and I know she would love it!

  79. LILA DE PENNING on May 31, 2011 9:16 am

    I would love to win the book — I love to look through the books, buy yarn, start a project, then start over again — look at book, buy yard, start project, …. But I have problem complelting projects,this summer my goal is to complete projects and when fall/winter begins and I can start new projects. If I win you book — I will probably make my first fall/winter project out of it.
