From the author of the fun and whimsical books, KnitWit: 20 Fun Projects for Beginners and Seasoned Knitters, and More KnitWits: 20 More Fun Projects for Those Who Love to Knit & Purl, comes this delightful take on knitwear.  With patterns suitable for both beginners and intermediate knitters, this book contains 150 full-color photos with step-by-step instructions for each project.  These projects are sure to make that special someone in your life smile and squeal with delight. Let's a take a look inside the book!

I really enjoyed reviewing this book!  It's delightful, charming, silly, and just plain fun!  The photography is absolutely fantastic.  Every project is very easy to see.  There are tons of step-by-step instructions with photos to help you complete the sewing, embroidery, and embellishments on the projects.  Katie also includes the pattern pieces for the eyes, teeth, and whatnot that are to be sewn onto the projects.  Each section is organized so that the easiest patterns are in the front of each section and the most difficult in the back of each section.  The pattern directions are written in a very nice, rounded, clean font, making it very easy to read.  Katie provides charts for all of the colorwork projects, so if you're coveting your child's Grump sweater, you can steal the chart and make one of your own!  I must say that my children have both requested items for themselves from this book and have been pouring over the patterns.  DD (age 7) would LOVE the Cyclops Mittens and the Raincloud Socks while DS (age 17) would like me to knit him a pair of Ninja Mitts and a Robot Scarf.  Personally, I'm smitten with the Hooter Hat and Mr. Micro Charm.  ;)  If you love to knit amigurumi or have enjoyed Katie's previous designs, you've got to pick up a copy of this truly fun book.  Who says knitters have to knit serious socks and sweaters all of the time?  Now knit time can be play time too!
