great little gifts to knit

For the month of September this gem has been touring around.  I'm so happy to be part of the tour.
This is truly a must have for your library.  I love SO many of the projects.  Such awesome ideas for the upcoming holidays or any time you want to celebrate a person (even YOU)!  A book to expand your creativity while embracing the gift of giving.  A win, win for everyone. 
Jean Moss didn't leave out a single detail.  The book has a technique and stitch section which explains both in depth.  Each project is given a skill level and the time it takes to knit.  (SO helpful!) 
I love how the book is divided into 4 gift categories:  Baby, Hers, His and Home. 
Baby is filled with booties, hats, mittens, cocoons, a blanket and a toddler jacket, not to mention those adorable beanbags above.  
Hers is filled with purses, fingerless gloves, a shrug, leg warmers, a turban, hat, baret, zebra mittens, a stole, a shawlette and a backpack.  
His offers socks, a hat, a head wrap, a guitar strap, a belt, a scarf, and a smart cover phone.
And for the Home, there are cushion covers, seat covers, place mats, napkin rings, a doggie jacket, tea cozies, and a celebratory toran.

The entire fun and beautiful project gallery is here.

If interested in a copy of great little gifts to knit, please leave me a comment between now and Tuesday the 24th, 5pm EST and the random number generator will choose a name.
