Weekend Knitting: 50 Unique Projects and Ideas

Weekend Knitting: 50 Unique Projects and IdeasWeekend Knitting: 50 Unique Projects and Ideas by Melanie Falick
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I was a little disappointed in this book.  There are 50 project designed by different well-known designers and each talks a bit about her knitting and project which is very interesting, but most of the projects are very plain.  Some of my favorite designers have projects, so I was anticipating stunning designs from them, but most are more like beginner projects.  I guess I should have anticipated this because the projects are designed to be completed in a weekend, but I got the book as a Kindle book, so I didn't get to see the projects before I bought it.

There are a few projects that I will probably make like the lace edged pillow cases, the little bolero jacket which is wonderful and the ear flap caps, so I feel like I got my money's worth, but I wish the  elf toe slippers were in adult sizes.  They are so cute, I may just have to make them and find a kid to give them to;>)
