My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This one of the best books I own. There are so many wonderful projects in it. I got it on a special for only $2.95, but it is worth the full price. If I was going to live on a deserted island with only one book, a tree and a pair of sheep. This would be it. There is just so much in it.
There are beautiful hats of varying complexity and many have mitts and socks to go with them. There's a whole section for Babies and Toddlers. There's a picture of a toddler with lace legwarmers that is so cute I want to make it even thought there are no toddlers in my life. I may have to start a box of presents for babies whose parents are still kids today. There are a few little sweaters and hats to go in the box also.
In the scarf and shawl section there all sorts of sizes and styles for just about everyone. There is a butterfly scarf which ought to please any teens on your gift list and a broomstick lace scarf which looks like fun. If you don't have time for a scarf, there are a number great cowls that would make great gifts. One shawl that is on my list is the Indian Paintbrush shawl which is panels of stockinette stitch with rays of lace.
If that is not enough, there is a section for accessories which includes belts, headbands, and bags, followed by a section of items for your home like curtain ties, bottle covers, dishcloths, and pillows.
