A fabulous compendium of 52 hand-knit designs to take even the most avid knitter through a whole through a whole year. Each of the projects in The Knitter's Year by Debbie Bliss has been designed to be made in a week or less, with some as easy enough to knit up on a rainy afternoon or a couple of evenings. The knitting projects range from a cosy chunky scarf, which takes a few balls of yarn, to the adorable Easter-bunny egg cosies, which can be made using remnants of yarn. Divided into the four seasons, the book starts with spring-time patterns such as a floral corsage and some fingerless gloves, summery projects include a beach bag and string shopper, a back-to-school iPod cover and simple beret and scarf for the autumn, and finally winter, where knits really come into their own with snug socks, slippers, and even ideas for Christmas gifts and tree decorations. A blissful year of knits to make for yourself of give as a special gift.
