What impresses me the most about this book is that it's more than just patterns to make gifts. Stitches and techniques are explained. Supplies are explained. Everything is clear and to the point. I enjoy that the book is also written on a personal level by Joelle Hoverson.

There are many projects to choose from. Just a small sampling are: Felted Potholders, Super Easy Leg Warmers, Soft Drawstring Pouch, Lovable Toys, and Chevron Scarf. There are a total of 32 patterns to choose from. I think it's time for me to dust off my knitting needles and give some of these gifts a try.

Disclaimer: I was sent the information as well as the digital edition book by Open Road Media for the purpose of this review. I was not compensated in any other way. Any opinions are my own.
